DESDEMONA:
A PLAY ABOUT A HANDKERCHIEF

by Paula Vogel

May 19 - June 11

at the Capitol hill arts workshop

 

The world’s a huge thing. It is a great price for a small vice.

The three female characters from Shakespeare's Othello tackle friendship, relationships, sex, and liberation in the back room of the castle while the story of Othello (and its dire consequences) unfolds around them. Told through a third-wave feminist lens, this raunchy romp through feminism is a hilarious and poignant delight.

 

Featuring original music from Manuela Osorio

Can't join us at the theatre? No worries! You can stream Desdemona: A Play About a Handkerchief. Streaming will be available through the evening of Sunday June 12. Tickets available HERE.
