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-not surprisingly, considering the author who created it.
Original title: Goodnight Desdemona (Good Morning Juliet)
