At first secretly married, Desdemona and Othello defiantly rise above racism and openly declare their love for each another. At the height of their triumphs, in love and war, they face their greatest foe in the duplicity of a most trusted ally.
The Taffety Punk Riot Grrrls return to present an all-female production of Shakespeare's tragedy. The Riot Grrrls take their name and inspiration from the 90's punk movement that was focused on bringing "grrrls to the front". This is an ongoing project to provide opportunities for women in theatre to play the roles ordinarily denied them.
