ReDiscovery Reading: Desdemona

In the Lansburgh Theatre

Written in 2012 in collaboration with internationally acclaimed director Peter Sellars and Malian musician Rokia Traoré, this kaleidoscopic work by Pulitzer and Nobel Prize-winning author Toni Morrison joins the decorated company of “response plays” to Shakespeare’s work, alongside Paula Vogel’s Desdemona, or a Play about a Handkerchief and David Greig’s Dunsinane. Lyrically reflecting on aspects of Shakespeare’s Othello, Morrison gives a voice back to Desdemona and a range of color to her world.
