What if Shakespeare’s greatest tragedies were actually comedies? Lovelorn academic, Constance Ledbelly, is convinced that they are. What’s more, she believes she knows the source of the plays. But after devastating disappointments in love and academia, she is transported into the Bard’s world of Othello and Romeo & Juliet, where she finds herself sending his stories in new directions. However, although she saves Desdemona and Juliet from their scripted deaths, their lives shoot off into directions that Constance had never envisioned. With an abundance of twists, fights, seductions, and wild surprises, Constance engages in a truly hilarious Elizabethan tale of self-discovery.
