Goodnight Desdemona (Good Morning Juliet)
April 1, 2017 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Theatre at Grenfell proudly presents award-winning Anne-Marie MacDonald’s Good Night Desdemona (Good Morning Juliet), a wonderful comedy featuring the work of Grenfell Theatre’s graduating class.
Constance Led-belly is a brilliant though timid academic, obsessed with deciphering the original source for Shakespeare’s tragedies Othello and Romeo and Juliet. Through a twist of theatrical fate (or perhaps just a meddlesome Chorus) she finds herself transported into the worlds of the plays themselves, meeting beloved characters and altering the narrative. Will Constance change the course of literary history and discover the true author of those works? Or will she just leave a trail of chaos in her wake and forever destroy the stories she so loves? One of Canadian theatre’s most popular and celebrated plays, Goodnight Desdemona (Good Morning Juliet) is Anne Marie MacDonald’s feminist love letter to the Bard– a witty, raucous, and heartfelt tale that will engage Shakespeare lovers and newcomers alike.
Cost: $10 for Students and Seniors. $15.00 for Adults.
