Shakespeare in the Park: Goodnight Desdemona

Free
If you’re a Shakespeare hater, this comedic take on two of Shakespeare’s most iconic tragedies might be for you. Goodnight, Desdemona. (Good Morning, Juliet.) was created on the premise that Othello and Romeo and Juliet were originally penned as comedies. The play’s protagonist, Constance Ledbelly, explores the worlds of the aforementioned tragedies and quickly turns things upside down with her meddling. Timelines become twisted, love stories are flipped around, and Romeo somehow ends up in Juliet’s clothes. Enjoy this comedic spectacle in the Lilac Bowl, under the Riverfront Pavilion or in Manito Park. No matter where you watch from, the actors from the Spokane Shakespeare Society, also known as S3, will be glad you’re there to witness the extravaganza.
