Lord Denney's Players 2019 production will be Romeo and Juliet. Probing the nature of love, violence, and language itself, this intricate coming-of-age tragedy has withstood the test of time as one of Shakespeare's best-loved and most performed plays.|
This year's production will take an experimental approach to this classic story. Our production will be set in a society out of time, defined entirely by the all-consuming violence of the feuding houses. We aim to explore young peoples resistance to deeply held collective beliefs and investigate their role in effecting social change.
The production will use an adaptation of the 1597 version of the text, known as 'Q1' or the First Quarto. The First Quarto text is considerably shorter than the canonical Second Quarto version of 1599, and features richly detailed stage directions, and interesting textual variations.
Performances will be held from April 4th-6th and April 11th-13th at 7:30pm at the Van Fleet Theatre of the Columbus Performing Arts Center.
