Desdemona: A Play About a Handkerchief

Robert E. Nims Theatre, University of New Orleans
Getting there
2000 Lakeshore Drive, New Orleans, LA

Set in the washroom of her palace, Desdemona searches for the handkerchief that will ultimately lead to her gruesome murder at the hands of her allegedly "perfect" husband. Based on William Shakespeare's classic tragedy Othello, this dark comedy follows Desdemona's last days alive and shows us that Shakeshpeare's virtuous leading lady might be hiding some things beneath the surface. Through a series of drunken bonding, evershifting power struggles, and a whole lot of laughs, Emilia, a maid, Bianca, a prostitute, and Desdemona navigate friendship, betrayel, and deceit with a raunchy humor that would make Shakespeare proud. Directed by Kalo Gow Featuring: Rachel Morris as Desdemona Emelie Lasseigne as Emilia Emily Bagwuill as Bianca *Please bring your printed ticket with you to present at the door along with your U.N.O.
