Othello’s wife Desdemona (Dana Ernst, right) is an adventurous vixen, Bianca (Clare Barawski, left) is a prostitute dreaming of marriage and Iago’s wife Emilia (Robin Rubeo) is a prudish confidant and maid on a mission.

Tickets for the theatre department production, under the direction of faculty member Joan Hart Willard, are priced at $5 for the preview and $13 ($7 for SUNY Oswego students) for the regular run.
