Goodnight Desdemona (Good Morning Juliet)

What’s so funny about a handkerchief?

A coded manuscript - possibly the lost source material for Shakespeare’s Othello and Romeo and Juliet - hurls Constance Ledbelly head over heels into the two plays, turning each from tragedy to comedy. Twists, fights, dances, seductions and wild surprises!

This activity is made possible in part by funds provided by the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council through an appropriation by the Minnesota Legislature.

Audio Described

Delta Giordano, in a completely fetching performance, plays Constance as brainy but self-thwarting, afraid of the passions to which she is entirely enthralled.
