Even if you’re familiar with Shakespeare’s classic story Othello, you’ve never seen it like this. Desdemona: A Play About a Handkerchief by Paula Vogel addresses this age old tale through the perspectives of three very different women – Othello’s wife Desdemona, her maid Emilia and Bianca, a local prostitute. This fast-paced exploration of a web of secrets, desires and men asks the question, what would you do to survive and feel alive?

Running TIme: 60 minutes with no intermission.

*Refreshments: *Wine and beer will be available for purchase.
