Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Paula Vogel brings her deliciously demented version of Othello to the Park Theatre.

In this hilarious version of William Shakespeare’s classic play, Desdemona: A Play About A Handkerchief exposes Othello’s wife as a volatile and passionate young woman who revels in bawdy tales of conquest, causing dismay for her long-suffering maid Emilia but entertainment for local prostitute Bianca.

The How I Learned To Drive playwright’s latest work, Desdemona: A Play About A Handkerchief presents the audience with three entirely different woman who form an unlikely friendship in their fight against society’s laws.
