Goodnight Desdemona (good morning Juliet) by Ann-Marie MacDonald( Book )

55 editions published between 1988 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 596 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this exuberant comedy - and original revision of Shakespeare's Othello and Romeo and Juliet - Constance Ledbelly, a drab and dusty academic, deciphers a cryptic manuscript she believes to be the original source for the tragedies, and is transported into the plays themselves. She visits Juliet and Desdemona, has a hand in saving them from the deaths the Bard had planned for them, and finds out what these women are all about. In true Shakespearean spirit, Constance plunders the plays and creates something new, all the while engaging in a personal voyage of self-discovery. With an abundance of twists, fights, dances, seductions and wild surprises, the play is an absolute joy in theatricality. - Back Cover

Sext up kids( Visual )

12 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 392 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The powder keg that is porn culture has exploded in the lives of North American children. From thongs and padded bras for 9-year-old girls to "sexting," 24-7 internet porn, and unfiltered social media, kids today are bombarded with commercial sexual appeals like never before. In this astonishing new documentary, award-winning documentary filmmaker Maureen Palmer explores what this radical transformation of the culture means for young people, parents, and our very notions of childhood. Palmer interviews researchers who have been tracking how the accelerating pressure to be sexy -- and sexual -- is changing kids' behavior and undermining their health. She sits down with parents and educators struggling to help kids navigate puberty in a hypermediated cultural environment that no longer seems to recognize or respect the developmental needs of children. And she talks to teens and pre-teens who share eerily casual insights into the routine role sex plays in their lives. The result is a stunning exploration of the sexualization of childhood and a startling wake-up call for parents who still think their own children are immune to the excesses and influences of today's sexed-up youth culture

Belle Moral : a natural history by Ann-Marie MacDonald( Book )

14 editions published between 2005 and 2011 in English and held by 189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ann-Marie MacDonalds love of the fabulous is in full force with this multi-layered reworking of her earlier play, The Arabs Mouth. Following her fathers death, amateur scientist Pearl MacIsaac struggles to discover the secret of her familys past, which her father had been kept hidden with the help of the family doctor. Set in Scotland in 1899, this dark and redemptive gothic comedy is a story of family secrets that have come to life and of the birth and evolution of ideas and truly a play of morals. Reaching out in two directions to reconcile the extremes of rationalism and romanticism, Belle Moral embraces a complex range of turn-of-the-century thought including Charles Darwins theory of evolution, contemporary medical beliefs and the concept of eugenics."--pub. desc
