Romeo and Juliet: Love Knows No Age|
By William Shakespeare
Directed by Christopher Goodrich
Unexpected Stage Company's production of Romeo and Juliet: Love Knows No Age revisits Shakespeare's most famous play and flips it on its head, as Romeo and Juliet are now septuagenarians and the Montagues and Capulets are their adult children. Set in an adult living community, this contemporary interpretation of a classic tragedy explores what happens when Romeo and Juliet fall passionately in love later in life.
The show marks the first Shakespearean production for Unexpected Stage Company, known for staging thought-provoking works such as last year's critically acclaimed production of Kooman and Dimond's Dani Girl (nominated for three Helen Hayes Awards) and productions such as Alan Bennett's The Lady in the Van (2013) and David Johnston's Candy and Dorothy (2011), both Helen Hayes Awards recommended.
