Theatre @ York is delighted to announce its 2019-20 season, built around the theme of performing gender.
This year we will present Ann Marie MacDonald’s Good Night Desdemona (Good Morning Juliet), directed by Jennifer Tarver, and Timothy Findlay’s Elizabeth Rex, directed by ted witzel, as well as a series of other studio shows and student-led productions, including The Ashley Plays, playGround, the Devised Theatre Festival, and Scenes by Design.
Good Night Desdemona (Good Morning Juliet) is a beloved feminist revisioning of two of Shakespeare’s most well-known plays, Othello and Romeo & Juliet.
Written by Canadian playwright Ann Marie MacDonald, the play explores the hypothetical question: what if Shakespeare’s tragedies were actually intended to be comedies?
To learn the answer to this question, please join us November 16-23 in the Joseph G. Green Theatre to find out.
