A short summary of our story
shakesqueer presents romeo & juliet

Our scene is set in Verona – an apocalyptic late-stage capitalistic hellscape. The hypocrisy and absurdities of The Great Grab and the horrors of vicious capitalism dig their own graves.  The wealthy, opulent House of Capulets hoards most of the county’s resources while the working-poor House of Montagues struggle for their basic survival – fresh water, healthy food, medicines are scarce. The bad blood runs hot in Verona’s streets and the two houses are deeply engaged in war. Meanwhile, Paris, a celebrity lifestyle influencer and niece to The Prince, seeks Juliet’s hand in marriage. So Capulet invites Paris to the masquerade ball he holds every year, hoping that Paris will win Juliet’s heart.

At the ball, Romeo speaks to Juliet, and the two experience a profound attraction. They kiss, not even knowing each other’s names. When the hopeful, lovesick Romeo, finds out that Juliet is the daughter of Capulet – her family’s enemy – and Juliet learns that Romeo, is the daughter of Montagues, they know their love is forbidden. Nevertheless, helped by Friar Laurence, they marry in secret. 

Two households, both alike in dignity (In fair Verona, where we lay our scene), from ancient grudge break to new mutiny, where civil blood makes civil hands unclean. This and the unfolding story of grief and woe is the two hours traffic of our stage.  Will these star crossed lovers break through the grief and tragedy of their times and the destructive nature of their families' feud? Can there be another ending for Romeo and her Juliet? The which, if you with patient ears attend, what here shall miss, our toil shall strive to mend.
