Helen Mirren is to appear in a one-off online performance of The Secret Love Life of Ophelia.
Mirren is supporting the Greenwich Theatre’s production of the play by Steven Berkoff.
It has been reimagined by the venue and will be performed by 39 young, emerging or marginalised actors (each reading out a letter Berkoff has imagined being written between Hamlet and Ophelia).
Mirren will make a special appearance as Gertrude at the play’s conclusion.
The Secret Love Life Of Ophelia will premiere on Greenwich Theatre’s YouTube channel on Friday 31 July at 7.30pm BST, and will remain available to watch for free until Friday 14 August.
