About the Play
Goodnight Desdemona (Good Morning Juliet) is a comedic story that centers around Constance Ledbelly, a "spinster" academic at Canada’s Queen’s University. The play unites two of Shakespeare’s tragedies, Othello and Romeo and Juliet, and turns them upside down.
When Constance deciphers an ancient and neglected manuscript, she is propelled through a rabbit hole and lands in the middle of the tragic turning points of each play. The desperate attempt of Constance to save Desdemona and Juliet from their fates takes the audience on a journey of comedy and near-tragedy. From sword fighting and dancing to mastering disguises, the play appeals to a wide variety of theatre enthusiasts.
