In this wonderful comedy, and original revision of Shakespeare’s Othello and Romeo and Juliet, Constance Ledbelly, a passive and awkward academic, deciphers a cryptic manuscript she believes to be the original source for the tragedies, and is transported into the plays themselves. Think Alice in Wonderland meets Twelfth Night. In true Shakespearean spirit, Constance plunders the plays and creates something new, all the while finding the meaning of self-discovery.
High school matinee performance on Friday, October 17, at 10 a.m.
This production is sponsored by Central Connecticut State University.
