Desdemona: A Play About a Handkerchief

Take a new look at Othello from the perspective of the classic’s female characters. What if Desdemona weren’t a virtuous woman? Why did Emilia betray her? The play’s action has grave repercussions for Cassio and Iago and the Moor. But what impact do these same events have on the women in the play?
