Desdemona, having slept with Othello’s entire encampment, revels in her bawdy tales of conquest. Her foils and rapt listeners are the other integral and re-imagined women of this Shakespeare tragedy: Emilia, Desdemona’s servant and the wife of Iago, and Bianca, now a majestic whore of Cyprus. The Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Paula Vogel turns Shakespeare’s Othello upside down to take a glimpse into the lives of the infamous women in Shakespeare’s world and what challenges they faced.
