SYNOPSIS: Lady Macbeth plays Monopoly with Juliet and shrewish Kate battles Cordelia at Trivial Pursuit. Ophelia cuts out paper flowers, and Desdemona sews handkerchiefs. Who is the mysterious man who seems to be so interested in the fate of these ladies? Is this an Elizabethan ladies club, or a literary loony bin? Only Dr. Wells seems to know for sure as she tries to help some of Shakespeare's heroines figure out their personal problems and bring closure to their theatrical lives. When Juliet is asked to reenact her tragic story, matters get out of hand and all of the ladies are caught up in the act. Staged with either Elizabethan costumes or contemporary clothes in a simple setting, this comedy ultimately twists and turns its way to a happy ending.

"Thomas Hischak’s Ladies, Sigh No More was a delight from start to finish. Its wonderful intertwining of Shakespearean characters was witty and fast-paced. Our audiences loved it, and it was funny even for those who don’t know Shakespeare. Yet it is also a great way to teach Shakespeare. The play was charming and a joy to present."
By Teresa Spitzer - Drama Director - Dryden High School, Dryden, NY
