Monique has been described as a mystery, a suspense and a play with a touch of the supernatural… it is all of these. It is a look at human nature, the passions that drive us, and those that can cause our ultimate deterioration and destruction. It is the story of Monique, a woman doctor, who has a long-standing friendship with Fernand and Lucienne, a married couple…it is a story of obsessions and conspiracy.
Fernand Ravinel (30-40s) a man with a hidden misery
Lucienne Ravinel, his wife (30-40s) a selfish and bitter woman a few years older than her husband
Lisette (16-20s, must look in her teens) an attractive young, idealistic, but shrewd girl
Dr, Monique Rigaud (30-40s) an efficient and manipulating woman doctor. She is of the same age as Lucienne but appears softer and more womanly

A Play About a Handkerchief
October 8th – November 5th
Saturdays & Sundays at 5pm
Written by Paula Vogel
Directed by Jill Johnson
Perception can be deceiving. Thought to be a faithful lover and wife, Vogel tells quite a different story of Desdemona. After spending time satiating her sexual adventurousness in the local whorehouse with the aid of the camp prostitute Bianca, Desdemona shares her adventures with her steadfast confidant Emilia. Following Shakespeare's Othello, Desdemona explores the female side of the male heavy power struggle. How much trouble can one little handkerchief cause?
“Vogel remains one of the smartest, moist original and engaging playwrights to come along in the last few years” - - -New York Newsday
Please note that this play contains mature subject matter and is recommended for adults only.
Desdemona - Headstrong, a woman not afraid of adventure. A woman not worried about consequences. A "Catherine Howard", whose immaturity is not obvious until she realizes that her actions will cost her her life.
Emilia - Brash, straightforward, ready to manipulate her betters subversively to get her husband ahead. In more control than lets on. The servants always know everything. Irish.
Bianca - an accomplished whore. Well versed in deception and sexual practices. Loyalty goes to the highest bidder. Cares about herself and only herself.
