Desdemona: A Play About A Handkerchief
By Paula Vogel
The three female characters from 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.
