Romeo & Juliet: A Requiem
April 25 May 27
Can you love someone back to life?

In this inventive and intimate six-actor version of Shakespeare’s play, the traumatized parents, Friar, and Nurse relive the passion, bravery, and recklessness of their star-crossed children. Conceived by People's Light Resident Director Samantha Reading (Richard III) and Producing Director Zak Berkman (The Harassment of Iris Malloy), this classic tale of balconies and battlegrounds becomes a vibrant act of truth and reconciliation.

April 25-May 27, 2018 By William Shakespeare Conceived for Six Actors by Zak Berkman & Samantha Reading Directed by Samantha Reading Leonard C. Haas Stage
