Romeo & Juliet by WIlliam Shakespeare presented by Theatre Coup d'Etat
Theatre Coup d'Etat invites you to experience the timeless tale of William Shakespeare's Romeo & Juliet, this time told with a twist. Romeo & Juliet has been heralded as "one of the greatest love stories ever told." We have read it in our high school English classes, watched it unfold on countless stages, and we have seen it reshaped and splashed on to movie screens across the world. It is a timeless piece of work with a timeless message; that true love is a simple, yet pure and powerful part of life and no single individual should be persecuted in their effort to pursue it.

Due to the upcoming vote on the marriage amendment, and in an effort to uphold their mission "to provoke an emotional and analytical response in [their] audiences by showing the depth of the human condition through both classical and contemporary works," and to support Minnesotans United for All Families "Pledge to Vote No," campaign, Theatre Coup d'Etat will be presenting William Shakespeare's Romeo & Juliet with Romeo played by a woman, as a woman. Theatre Coup d'Etat aims to serve the Minnesota community it works in and the challenges it faces.

Theatre Coup d'Etat has established itself by using a raw, gritty and minimalist approach to some of the most renowned pieces of theatre. The company was formed in 2011 by James Napoleon Stone and Peter Beard on the idea that theatre should be used as a social tool to provoke, not to sedate. Recently credited with an "aggressive" and "divine" (TC Planet) Angels in America: Millennium Approaches, Theatre Coup d'Etat has also presented an "impressively conceptualized and beautifully performed" production (Goldstar Audience Review) of A Streetcar Named Desire, and a "ferocious" (TC Planet) Macbeth. The production of Romeo & Juliet will be no different in its effort to spark a response from its audience.
