Ann-Marie MacDonald’s witty play is a sparkling comedic tale of self-discovery. Graduate-Assistant Constance Leadbelly, who is obsessed with decoding Shakespearean manuscripts, is suddenly propelled into a world of Othello and Romeo and Juliet. She unintentionally alters them into comedies by saving the lives of two leading ladies. Seductions, sword fights, and disguises ensue in this award-winning Canadian play.
