The Rude Mechanicals and the Greenbelt Arts Center present this online production of Romeo & Juliet, the story of two young women in rural America fighting against the prejudices of their families and even themselves in order to be together. This cast brings new life, heart, and insight to this classic play.

From the Director:
“I wanted to explore how we overlook and miss the voices of young people. There is a striking lack of trust and communication between the young people in this community and the adults, and the consequences are dire. What does it mean for two young women, living in a town so small they’re practically isolated, to learn something about themselves — their love for each other — that suddenly makes them an Other? Alienated from the few people around them, who would they go to? Who would they trust? Suddenly, as the grapple not only with their secret infatuation but with the secret of their own identities, we can feel the full weight of the stakes Shakespeare is presenting to us, and the story begins to shed new light on what it is to love others and yourself.”

Performances will be online and open to the public. Please consider a suggested donation of $10 to support the work and expansion of both the Rude Mechanicals and the Greenbelt Arts Center.

Camp Encore presents:
Romeo and Juliet
“My only love sprung from my only hate”
By William Shakespeare
Directed and adapted by Kate Magill Robinson

Join director Kate Magill Robinson and the Camp Encore troupe leaders as they delve into Shakespeare’s most iconic tragic love story. Rival gangs – the Capulets and the Montagues – patrol the streets of Verona, ripping the city into factions as they play out an age-old vendetta. Against the backdrop of this epic feud, Romeo Montague crashes a Capulet party with his friends, and there he first sets eyes upon the beautiful Juliet, the heir to the Capulet family. The star-crossed lovers attempt to live out the passion of their hasty romance and secret marriage, amidst the violence of their families’ feud. But fate, fortune, and a series of cataclysmic circumstances steer them off-course toward their inescapably tragic end.

PARENTAL ADVISORY: Not recommended for those under 12.
