In Goodnight Desdemona (Good Morning Juliet), literature scholar and self-described old maid Constance Ledbelly has reason to believe that two of Shakespeare’s iconic tragedies, Othello and Romeo and Juliet, were not originally written as tragedies at all. Too timid to show her skeptical boss her findings, Constance withdraws into her subconscious mind and the two tragedies to find a lost fool or two with the help of Desdemona and Juliet.

Through Saturday, June 10. $21-62. American Shakespeare Center, 10 S. Market St., Staunton. (540) 851-1733.
