||March - May 2015
Two teenagers in Verona, Italy must decide between submission to the will
of family and sacrifice for “the course of true love.” Shakespeare’s
romantic tragedy explores the timeless and inescapable draw of forbidden
love in this new adaptation directed by Artistic Director Emily Mattina
Richman (author and University of New Hampshire Theater Professor).
This classic production of Shakespeare's
timeless tale of love, action and family feud is brought to life by five
professional actors using the Bard's original language. The unique
sound design enhances our innovative, visceral, one-hour adaptation.
The pre-show session introduces the audience to the plot, with a post-show
talk-back designed to establish dialogue with the audience about the
universal issues and themes in the play.
The interactive pre-show session
and the talk back address important issues in the production and encourage
the relationship between the actors and the audience.
A study guide with curriculum
based pre- and post-show activities accompanies this production.
