Join us as we close out 2013 with a staged reading of Paula Vogel's Desdemona, A Play About A Handkerchief, November 8-10 at Fall Creek Studios. This modern re-vision of Othello takes the three female characters from Shakespeare's play and imagines their lives, personalities, and relationships very differently from the way they are presented in Shakespeare's play.

This all-female production is intended as a follow-up and companion piece to ISC's production of Othello this past summer. It features two members of the Othello cast reprising their roles: Marissa Biondolillo will again play Desdemona, while Judith Andrew returns as Emilia. The cast is rounded out by Melanie Uhlir as Bianca, and Judith Pratt will direct.

Paula Vogel received her M.A. from Cornell University in 1976 and was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for drama in 1998. Desdemona premiered in 1979 and is structured in thirty "cinematic 'takes' " of varying length. Both provocative and thought-provoking, the play blends humor with a critical examination of the treatment of women in Shakespeare's play.

Please note that this play contains mature subject matter and is recommended for adults only.

Seating for both events is strictly limited, so don't wait too long to get your tickets!
