Swanky society parties, moonlit nights, desolate churchyards and blood-strewn streets. Set in the contemporary chaos of a city steeped in class and racial conflict, two star-crossed souls collide and fall fast in love, only to take their own lives in a tragic twist of fate. A fresh look at Shakespeare’s cataclysmic romance, The Acting Company’s (Julius Caesar, 2017) Romeo and Juliet is a lesson in hope and healing, as the grudge between the Montagues and Capulets, like so much human strife, is no match for the fire and boundless passion of youth.
Content Note: This production contains strong language and mature themes, as well as depictions of smoking, drinking, suicide and domestic & street violence.
Here’s much to do with hate, but more with love.
