Short Shakespeare! Romeo and Juliet

800 E. Grand Ave., Chicago, 60611 | directions
312.595.5600
by William Shakespeare
adapted and directed by Marti Lyons

Verona burns under summer's heat—and the hatred of two families. The Prince decrees: if Montague or Capulet again disrupts the peace, lives will answer to the law. Violence stains Verona's streets. Against this horror, Shakespeare sets Romeo and Juliet, a tale of true love found—and tragically lost—within an endless cycle of hate. This 75-minute adaptation, told in Shakespeare's own words, speaks to today's youth about their own lives. After the performance, audiences are welcome to join the cast for a post-show discussion. Recommended for ages 10 and up.
