Rottingdean Drama Society’s next production will be Goodnight Desdemona (Good Morning Juliet). It is an award-winning comedy by Ann-Marie MacDonald. In it Constance, a young professor of English Literature, goes on a subconscious journey of self-discovery.
Constance is a hopeless academic who believes that the plays Othello and Romeo & Juliet were originally comedies and Shakespeare wrote out the wise fool to turn them into tragedies. The play magically whisks her first to Othello and then to Romeo & Juliet. There we find that our tragic heroines are actually pretty gutsy gals and that Romeo and Othello are not all they have been portrayed.
With laughs, opportunities for bawdiness and a splendidly surreal ‘Alice in Wonderland’ feel, this is an excellent piece of entertainment.
This production is supported by the Royal Shakespeare Company through the Open Stages project. It is also our entry in Brighton & Hove Arts Council’s Drama Awards.
The play will be shown in the Public Hall, in Park Road Rottingdean, Brighton BN2 7HL. Performances will be at 2pm on Saturday 18 October and 7.45pm on Wednesday-Saturday 15-18 October
