Goodnight Desdemona (Good Morning Juliet) is Ann-Marie MacDonald’s dazzlingly witty, hugely inventive love-letter to Shakespeare, feminism, scholarship, dogged sleuthing and the triumph of the underdog. This Governor-General's and Chalmers prize-winning comedy reveals what happens when "Othello” and "Romeo and Juliet” are rescued from tragedy. Of course MacDonald’s razor sharp mind is in every twist and turn in the layered story, and in every double and triple entendre. The story of the play is devilishly clever and you can tell she must have had a blast writing it.  Prior knowledge of Shakespeare is not necessary: this is a gender-bendy, big-hearted and crazily-intelligent romp, where irony and anger sing in harmony with innocence and poignancy. This production goes like the wind, winks at the audience and tweaks its cheeks, and sends them out into the night, smiling.

Way down in the darkness of Buster Swamp Florida, the Nettle sisters are determined to escape spinsterhood—Willie Mae by finding a good Mormon husband, and Faye by hopping on the spaceship when the "space people," who first visited the swamp 25 years ago, return. But who is the mysterious bird-woman who sets in motion an extraordinary chain of events? A Southern gothic comedy of romance, murder and alien abduction!

In the West Village of Manhattan, Jimmy Zoole, a thirty-ish actor is having a run of bad luck. He's been robbed twice (they even took the only copy of his first novel), fired from a play, has a cat on the critical list, a girl friend who's leaving, and he discovers a burglar hiding in his loft. To avenge his life, he ties "Vito" to the kitchen sink and keeps him prisoner over the long New Year's Eve.
