An aspiring actress and founder of a feminist commune, Celia wants one thing: to play a great role. But despite her sophisticated education and commitment to helping women, Celia, like Hamlet before her, cannot act. Still, it seems her consciousness doesn’t lie only inside herself. It seeds and sprouts amidst her twenty-first century kinships: her friends. Inspired by Shakespeare and set in those hazy post-college years, Blown Youth examines what happens to the universe when a woman is at its center.
Shakespeare experience preferred but not necessary. One act of this play does include an all-female mounting of Hamlet.
