Event Description

A tragedy by William Shakespeare for this occasion adapted by Neno Pervan

A young, lovesick boy falls instantly in love with a young girl, and she passionately and momentarily loves him back. Their love is bigger than life. Alas, their influential, rich families are locked into a decades old vendetta. This leads to tragedy. We all know this basic plot of Romeo and Juliet. We know how and where it starts and how it ends. We all recognize it as one of the great love stories.

Yet, we do not know – why? Why do these young lovers have to die? Why do their respective families hate each other so much? Shakespeare did not tell us. We will try to find out. We respect the Bard’s timeless verse, but we are creating our own Verona. Our Romeo and Juliet, and their Love, are on Fire.

We hope you will enjoy our show.

Produced by Santa Monica Playhouse and Il Dolce Theatre Company.

Masks are no longer required, but still encouraged. We have extras – just ask.
