Canadian playwright and novelist Ann-Marie MacDonald’s play follows Constance Leadbelly, a graduate assistant who loves Shakespearean manuscripts. When she becomes consumed with Othello and Romeo and Juliet, she transforms them from tragedies into comedies when she saves the lives of Desdemona and Juliet. This play is witty and comedic.
