Artistic director Joanna Settle will stage the free production that will run June 26-July 8 in Greenwich, CT's Baldwin Park, and in Pinkney Park from July 18-July 29 in Rowayton, CT.
"We are conceiving Romeo and Juliet as a dinner party among eight friends who have an annual tradition of reading a Shakespeare play on a gorgeous summer’s night," Settle said in a statement. "Over the course of reading the play, the story will take over and our guests both on-stage and off will find themselves completely consumed over by the momentum and poetry of the events in Shakespeare's classic romance."
Joining Ahn as Juliet and Harper as Romeo, are David Cale (Friar), Matt Citron (Mercutio), Will Cohn (Benvolio), Rachael Holmes (Lady Capulet/Tybalt), Damian Lemar Hudson (Singer/Paris), Chinasa Ogbuagu (Nurse) and Tony Torn (Capulet).
The production will have set design by Andrew Lieberman, costume design by Tilly Grimes, lighting design by Keith Parham, sound system design by Jessica Paz, sound design by Obadiah Eaves and choreography by David Neumann.
