When Jessica Bisset is cast as Hamlet in an upcoming production, she immediately thinks she can't play the role.  After all, what has she "got in common with a 400 year old fictional character?"  As she works her way through the nuances and challenges of the role she's tasked with now, a flurry of characters played by a rotating ensemble cast reveal that not only are we in some ways "the roles we play" but also the roles we choose for ourselves that make us who we are.
