A love to die for...
When you are passionately, purely in love, nothing else matters-not even life itself. Shakespeare's consummate tragedy of young lovers swept into a catastrophic vortex of misunderstandings, secrets, and fate is set in 1840s Alta California, a vibrant and conflicted time in our history. Romeo and Juliet, the son and daughter of two landed families locked in an old feud, are irresistibly drawn to each other. Defying the hatred and distrust surrounding them, they dare to believe they can-and must-be together.
2012 stage version directed by Laird Williamso
"A captivating rendition, courtly enough in its tone and design to allay traditionalist carping, yet energetic, full-blooded, and in no way hidebound."-OregonLive on the Oregon Shakespeare Festival's theatrical production of Romeo and Juliet
