It ends up even Shakespeare’s characters are in lockdown!  Forced to remain in isolation until further notice, four tragic characters make time to join a self-help group, virtually of course!  Tragic characters Ophelia, Lady Anne, Romeo, and Juliet, seek support at the Tragedians Anonymous group led by Prospero, where the meeting’s theme is “Identify those who wrong us and those who we wrong.”  In this smart, laugh-out-loud comedy that’s also quite educational, the characters proceed to confront the other characters in their plays.  They’re also forced to face their Fatal Flaws, who come to life onstage! 

This virtual masterpiece is a fantastic comic send-up and tribute to Shakespeare’s tragedies that also re-familiarizes us with the storylines and characters of some of Shakespeare’s greatest works.  Salomonsson studied at the National Shakespeare Conservatory and has combined her loves for Shakespeare, teaching, and writing in this creative virtual adaptation of her award-winning full-length play, Outrageous Fortune
