oct. 18-29 | romeo and juliet | twu

Our friends at Trinity Western University are launching their season with ROMEO AND JULIET, featuring a lot of the talent you saw on our stage in THE GREAT DIVORCE: Brandon Bate, Julie Casselman, Lyndon Johnson, and Sarah Ruth.

‘Tis but thy name that is my enemy...

Forbidden passions. Class rivalry. Religious tensions. This is the wrong neighbourhood to go looking for love.

But when love finds them, they’ll have to decide just how much they’re willing to risk for it…

Coupling the beauty of Shakespeare’s language with an imaginative, contemporary setting, this deeply human story is brought closer to home than ever before.

PS How's this for a serendipitous tie-in? On Nov 2 there'll be a screening at the VanCity Theatre of Baz Luhrmann's Romeo & Juliet - which has more than a little similarity to the concept for this TWU show - with the introductory talk given by TWU alumn and longtime Pacific Theatre gal Julie Sutherland! Watch the VanCity Theatre website for details, once the VIFF is done.
