Romeo & Juliet
Everyone has seen Romeo & Juliet and everyone and their ma has tried their hand at this story.
For us, Romeo & Juliet has always been a story about the cycle of violence passed down through the generations. No matter how hard the kids try to change their fate and create a new reality, the infrastructure built by hate and the self-serving adults in power traps them. Whatever connection exists between our title characters, whether you believe it’s true love or just a light in the darkness, cannot exist in this world.
For reasons we have neither the time nor the space to get into, this feels pretty damn relevant today.
To modernize this piece we will be taking the story and the beautiful language as written and giving it to voices and bodies that have been kept out of the narrative for too long. This production will include a culturally diverse cast as well as LGBTQA representation.This story is for everyone and we want to make sure people of today can see themselves in this unmatched play.
