A rose by any other name ...

Join us for an experimental theatre experience as we take a new look at one of William Shakespeare's move beloved tragedies. We've broken this classic work down into five scenes, directed by a team of alumni and student directors. Each scene will feature a different style, casting and era, highlighting this story's relevance to all of us.

"Two households, both alike in diginity, in fair Verona, where we lay out scene, from ancient grudge break to new mutiny, where civil blood makes civil hands unclean. From forth the fatal loins of these two foes a pair of star-cross'd lovers take their life; whose misadventure'd piteous overthrows doth with their death bury their parents' strife. The fearful passage of their death-mark'd love, and the the continuance of their parents' rage, which, but their children's end, naught could remove, is now the two hours' traffic of our stage; the which if you with patient ears attend, what here shall miss, our toil shall strive to mend." —Romeo & Juliet, Act I, prologue
