Romeo and Juliet

Produced and presented by Ruckus Theatre Co.
A tragedy of youth.

This production of ‘Romeo and Juliet’ is far darker than the usual romantic gaze. It may well be the grittiest production of this play you ever see. With grunge aesthetics and swarming soundscapes, Ruckus’ vision focuses on the violent entanglement between the houses, particularly in its effect on the play’s two lost youths. The action is explosive, the love, intimate. By reimagining the relationship as one of two young women, Ruckus dives head first into mental health, the loss of youth, and the psychic oppression of violent society. By embracing the violent potential of this play, we guarantee an engaging, and truly tragic, experience.
