Goodnight Desdemona, Good Morning Juliet

Goodnight Desdemona, Good Morning Juliet

Ann-Marie MacDonald

ISBN: 9780802135773

"Delightful, often hilarious...MacDonald doesn't miss a trick, scattering satirical observations on love and sex, scholdarship and the Baird like birdseed, while taking full advantage of the slapstick possibilities in Shakespearean cross-dressing." -The Washington Post

In this exuberant comedy and original revision of Shakespeare's Othello and Romeo and Juliet -- Constance Ledbelly, a drab and dusty academic, deciphers a cryptic manuscript she believes to be the original source for the tragedies, and is transported into the plays themselves. She visits Juliet and Desdemona, has a hand in saving them, and finds out what these women are about. In true Shakespearean spirit, Constance plunders the plays and creates something new, all the while engaging in a personal voyage of self-discovery. With an abundance of twists, fights, dances, seductions, and wild surprises, the play is an absolute joy of theatricality. Comedy, 2m, 3f (with doubling, tripling, etc.)
