Romeo and Juliet

August 2 - August 13 | Main Stage
2006 Season

Author: Shakespeare, William
Director: Frears, Will

“A plague on both your houses!” ROMEO AND JULIET, one of Shakespeare’s earliest plays, has become western culture’s defining romance. As old as the ancient Italian town in which it’s set, yet as urgent, inevitable and shocking as today’s headlines. A star-crossed couple, more in love than any two people have a right to be, find each other, and are ultimately undone, in the midst of a terrible, unyielding and blood-thirsty feud. Will the day ever come when we take up Shakespeare’s challenge to stare down bigotry with tolerance? This summer at WTF, an unmissable production of one of the greatest plays of all time.

“For never was a story of more woe, than this of Juliet and her Romeo.”
