Keeping with our new tradition of exploring new works inspired by Shakespeare, started last year with All One Forest, Barefoot Shakespeare takes on our first prequel.
Synopsis: What caused the feud between the Montagues and the Capulets? This prequel to Romeo and Juliet follows the story of Rose from country girl to lady of Verona and explores the betrayal, revenge, and manipulations that set the houses of Capulet and Montague against one another in a time when the influence of family, money, power, and gender determine everything. Using evocative language, Lady Capulet asks large questions about women’s place in culture today through a Shakespearean lens.
