What if Ophelia met Juliet? Would she give her some relationship advice? What if Portia told Cleopatra to wise up? All headstrong, feisty and in the thralls of love, but what can they learn from each other? ‘Shakespeare’s Women’ is a brand new show written by and starring Clare McMahon. This new play sees 2 actresses play over 15 of Shakespeare’s Women.

The original plays shine as we bounce from character to character and scene to scene. Can one woman’s advice stop the other doing something stupid? Would they be happier (and less dead) if they just dumped their men? ‘Shakespeare’s Women’ is sure to entertain, enlighten and enthral in this 400th year since Shakespeare’s birth.

Clare McMahon trained at Royal Central School of Speech & Drama. She made her West End debut in ‘The Cripple of Inishmaan’ and has worked extensively in the UK and Ireland.
