Game of Tiaras
by Don Zolidis

Directed by Jennifer Hamilton
Presented by Oregon Coast Council for the Arts Summer Theatre Camp

When the aging king of a Magical Kingdom (England) decides to split his empire between his three daughters, Cinderella, Belle, and the Snow Queen (who in no way resembles a copyrighted character), terrible tragedy ensues. Terrible, hilarious tragedy. Combining the gut-wrenching plot twists of Game of Thrones and the soul-numbing despair of Shakespearean tragedy, this adaptation of King Lear will leave you keeled-over from laughter as the body count mounts. When you play the Game of Tiaras, you win or you croak.

Produced by special arrangement with Playscripts, Inc. (
