Written by acclaimed novelist Toni Morrison, Desdemona puts the doomed heroine of Shakespeare’s Othello center stage to reflect on the events of The Bard’s tragedy. Infused with song, this play exploring Desdemona’s relationship with her nursemaid adds a powerful, female perspective on the events and characters of Shakespeare’s play.
