Desdemona, A Play About A Handkerchief_p
Desdemona, A Play About a Handkerchief
by Paula Vogel
November 9 - 25, 2018

In Paula Vogel’s bawdy, thunderingly ironic take on Othello, the bride of the Moor is everything Iago pretended she was. Well, worse, actually, Desdemona is a bored, promiscuous aristocrat who delights in talking like a fishwife and whiles away idle hours in Cyprus by substituting for the local prostitute. Her rapt listeners are the other reimagined women of this Shakespeare tragedy: Emilia, her servant and the wife of Iago, and Bianca, now a majestic whore of Cyprus. Though Desdemona has never been intimate with Cassio, her life is soon in danger when her husband, Othello, also suspects her of infidelity.
