Synopsis

Goodnight Desdemona - Good Morning Juliet

Goodnight Desdemona - Good Morning Juliet $15.99

Ann-Marie MacDonald

Published by Grove Press

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

REVIEWS

"One of the wildest and woolliest feminist reappraisals that the theatre has seen, and one of the most intellectually ambitious" ~ The Globe and Mail

"A tour de force.... Ann-Marie delivers her message with tremendous wit, breathtaking wordplay and great gusts of knee-slapping bread comedy" ~ The Ottawa Citizen

"Magical.... An uproarious and smart comedy" ~ Pittsburgh Press
