Goodnight Desdemona (Good Morning Juliet) tells the other-worldly, comedic story of Constance, an overlooked academic striving to prove her theory about two of Shakespeare’s best-known plays. Through Constance’s often-hilarious subconscious journey of self-discovery, Shakespeare’s archetypal heroines are shown in a new light as they try to untangle issues of identity, sexuality and self-worth
