The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood

adapted for the stage by Joe Stollenwerk


Nolite te bastardes carborundorum.

In the near future, what’s left of the United States has become a theocracy known as the Republic of Gilead. As with many women in Gilead, Offred has had her name and family taken from her, forced to become a Handmaid, a vessel for population growth, valued only for her viable ovaries. In the midst of the oppressive new regime, and armed with memories of life before the revolution, Offred struggles to maintain her individuality, personhood, and hope for a better possible future.

Margaret Atwood’s dystopian masterpiece of speculative fiction is adapted for the stage by Cincinnati native, Joe Stollenwerk, directed by Cincinnati Shakespeare’s Brian Isaac Phillips, and starring Corinne Mohlenhoff.

January 23-February 20, 2015.
