About this show

The Mill presents a night of Burlesque featuring Desdemona: A Play About a Handkerchief, by Paula Vogel, directed by Jaclyn Biskup. It turns out Cassio might be the only guy Dessie hasn't shagged. This bawdy re-imagining is a raucous romp filled with unexpected twists. The Mill's production draws inspiration from the structure of early burlesque, using original songs and skits poking fun at Othello and gender politics to make up the first act of the performance and finishing with Vogel's parody of one of Shakespeare's great plays.
