Harlem Duet

Written / Directed by Djanet Sears
Sep 18, 2018 – Oct 28, 2018 in the Mainspace
Opened Wednesday, September 26, 2018

A play from multi award-winning and nationally recognized playwright.

The return of a Canadian theatre milestone! Djanet Sears’ rhapsodic blues riff on Othello whisks the tale off to Harlem, where a college professor leaves his grad student wife for a white colleague. The stinging abandonment leads to profound questions about love, loss, loyalty and race, played out over two centuries in a wide range of settings. An iconic work that packs as powerful a punch now as it did when it debuted over twenty years ago.
