William Shakespeare meets Lewis Carroll (with a touch of Gloria Steinem!) in this zany comedy about a downtrodden assistant professor struggling to complete her doctorate with an underappreciated thesis: that two of Shakespeare’s’ tragedies were originally comedies! Her hopes are pinned on her ability to decode an obscure manuscript said to be written by Shakespeare’s contemporary and buddy, an alchemist named Gustave. As mysterious forces leave tantalizing clues, Constance Ledbelly goes down the proverbial rabbit hole becoming a character in both Othello and Romeo and Juliet. Along the way she will discover comic and profound insights into the nature of authorship, the Shakespearean Canon, and (last, but not least) her own nature.
