Idaho Fun for Everyone!

Fringe Theatrical: Desdemona

April 5th - 14th, 2018 | See Showtimes Here
Fringe Theatrical Productions presents the second play of their inaugural season: Desdemona, a play about a handkerchief by Paula Vogel. As the wrongly accused and suffering wife of Shakespeare's Othello, Desdemona has long been viewed as the victim of circumstance. But as Pulitzer Prize-winner Vogel demonstrates in her comic deconstruction of Shakespeare's play, aligning tongue-in-cheek humor while raising serious questions as to the role of women through the ages, Desdemona was far from the quivering naif we've all come to know.
