 In Shakespeare's most well-known tragedy, two young star-crossed lovers’ deaths ultimately reconcile their feuding families. This straightforward adaptation mixing contemporary and classical language emphasizes story and character rather than the poetry. Master director and acclaimed playwright Jon Jory has reimagined the classic tale to serve as an early introduction for younger audiences and actors that allows easy involvement. Inventive yet faithful, this adaptation will inspire actors and audiences alike to revisit Shakespeare’s original texts. Gender-neutral casting is encouraged and doubling is possible. Simple stage allows for a fluid and forward moving production. (A full-length version is also available.)
