Chamberlain's production is a perfect alchemy of old and new, of comedic and poignant.

When I entered Hart House Theatre I was filled with gleeful anticipation. Goodnight Desdemona (Good Morning Juliet) is a play with a special place in my heart, as it was one of the first contemporary plays I fell in love with when I first saw a production of it in high school, at Toronto's Upper Canada College. A few years later I was lucky enough to get to see the play with none other than the author herself, Canada's own Ann-Marie MacDonald, in the lead role as the relentlessly self-deprecating academic Contance Ledbelly. Hart House's current production had a lot to live up to.
Running time: 2.5 hours, including intermission
