Dante's Inferno meets Shakespeare

In this Shakespeare inspired adaptation we explore the consequences of some of our favorite heroines and humanize the most evil women ever to be penned to paper. From Ophelia being damned by her own love for Hamlet and ending up in the Forest of Suicides, Hermione from the Winter's Tale being wrongfully accused of adultery and ending up in Lust, or Tamora vowing revenge for the death of her sons and spending eternity in Wrath; we'll explore the depths of hell in this feminist re-imagining.
