Goodnight Desdemona (Good Morning Juliet) is an exuberant comedy by Ann-Marie MacDonald, and Governor General’s Award winner. Were Shakespeare’s classic tragedies "Othello" and "Romeo and Juliet" originally comedies that got lost in translation? That’s what Constance, a young English literature prof from Queen’s University believes. So begins her comedic search for the ‘lost fool’, and possibly herself, through a modern rabbit hole with the intrepid help – and often hindrance - of fair Juliet and wise Desdemona.

Well what could possibly improve murder and mayhem better than singing and dancing? And make it funny! Yes, that’s it; people love a comedy! More than a parody; more than an adaption – it’s a bloody grand time!

The End of History: Jennifer Welsh
The End of History: Jennifer Welsh 09/23/16

Presented by 2016 CBC Massey Lectures
September 23, 2016 @ 7:00PM
York Theatre

In his 1989 essay "The End of History?" Francis Fukuyama suggested that western liberal democracy was the endpoint for political systems- the best and final system to emerge after thousands of years of trial and error and theory about large-scale social organisation. Fukuyama seems to have been wrong; our recent history- filled with terrorism and war, rising inequity and the mass flight of peoples- suggests that we've failed to create any sort of global formula for lasting peace and social equity. Jennifer Welsh's 2016 Massey Lectures explore the why's and the what-now's.

Tickets:
Adult $35.00 (Sec A) $30.00 (Sec B & C)
Student & Senior $20.00 (All Sections)
