Law and order is unable to quell an ancient and violent feud between the two wealthiest families of Verona. Fate steps in and introduces the rivals’ teenage progeny who fall in love at first sight. Can the intensity of young love undo their parents’ enduring hatred, or is love’s unbridled desire so intense that it will destroy the lovers themselves? Shakespeare’s greatest romantic tragedy is a timeless and powerful depiction of the fever pitch and madness of young love, celebrating both its ability to save and to destroy.
Presented in rotating repertory with Machiavelli's THE MANDRAKE.
