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.

The Rude Mechanicals present
Love’s Labour’s Lost
by William Shakespeare
Directed by Liana Olear

January 31 – February 9, 2020

Location: Greenbelt Arts Center

Shakespeare’s Love’s Labour’s Lost is a comedy best known for its witty wordplay – the clever characters speak in puns, and less clever ones in malapropisms. The Rude Mechanicals’ production uses a modern setting, with cell phones, selfies and social media, to showcase Shakespeare’s timeless themes. But, spoiler – the ending is in the play’s name, and if ever you were annoyed at Romeo and Juliet’s brief acquaintance (coming soon!) being touted as love for the ages, perhaps you’ll appreciate an exploration of a much more sensible alternative.

Ticket prices: $24 General Admission, $22 Seniors/Military, $12 Student/Youth. Buy tickets here.
