Ann-Marie MacDonald''s Goodnight Desdemona (Good Morning Juliet) has delighted audiences and won the Governor General''s Award for Drama and the Chalmers Award for Outstanding Play.

In this exuberant comedy, MacDonald asks, What if Desdemona and Juliet were allowed to live? Constance Ledbelly, a tweedy academic, has ghostwritten the papers of her mentor for years, when suddenly he announces he''s marrying a rival. Escaping into her research, Constance decodes the Gustav Manuscript, which turns out to include an unknown pair of comedies that she believes were the source for Shakespeare''s Othello and Romeo and Juliet. Transported into the world of her theory, she comes face-to-face with Desdemona and Juliet, and discovers that, far from shrinking violets, they were hellions full of surprises. What follows is a riotous retelling of theatrical legend that brings Constance out of her gloom and straight into a new and confident self.
