A Visceral Play
12 Ophelias by Caridad Svich is the best play I have read in a long time, and I read a lot of plays. Caridad's writing is concise and packed with emotion. The story is a deconstruction of the story of Shakespeare's Ophelia. More accurately, it is the story of what happened after Ophelia drowned. In this world she is reborn to face new and old challenges. I would recommend this play to anyone.
