About the Show

“One of the wildest and wooliest feminist reappraisals that the theatre has seen…”
-The Globe and Mail
A beleaguered academic and unlikely heroine is convinced that Shakespeare’s Othello and Romeo and Juliet were never meant to be tragic. A magical manuscript sweeps her through time and space on a quest for Shakespearean origins and, ultimately, her own identity. This Governor General Award-winning play is an exuberant comedy that questions what may have been lost in translation, with all those classic tropes!
