Through the eyes of Othello’s martyred wife, we see the story that Shakespeare neglected. Pulitzer Prize winning playwright Paula Vogel gives Desdemona a richer and more complicated life than even her jealous husband could suspect. Along with Emelia, her trusty fille-de-chambre, Desdemona engages with questions of gender, sex, religion, and relationships in a world that fails to acknowledge how limitless women can be.
Two hospital patients fall in love in a play written before the audience’s eyes.

In this dark comedy about interrogation and innovation, a computer programmer is arrested after the search engine he designs answers “yes” to the question “is the government of the United States evil?” Desperate, he strikes a deal with his captors, agreeing to resign the software in exchange for his freedom.
