Romeo and Juliet

May 17 - June 9, 2019

by William Shakespeare
directed by Susannah Martin

In a world of violence, what does it cost to choose love?

The Capulet and Montague families are caught in a decades-long feud—and their children are caught in the crucible of adolescence. 

As societal expectations clash with youthful rebellion, stakes that started high soon become deadly. 

Directed by Susannah Martin, Shakespeare’s best-known tragedy asks incisive questions about the consequences of entrenched power, inherited expectations, and cycles of retribution.

“Inventive staging and inspired casting… Ubuntu once again takes a familiar play, strips it to its core, and exposes a powerful modern meaning!”

“Lovely and lively… Active and realistic fight scenes, contemporary dress, and very affordable ticket prices… a wonderful way to introduce young people to the wonders of Shakespearean drama!”
