Romeo and Juliet
by William Shakespeare
An ancient grudge.
A forbidden love.
Shakespeare’s most famous tragedy as you’ve never seen it before.
NCShakes’ 35th MainStage production puts a new spin on one of the world’s best-known stories. Using Shakespeare’s original text in a contemporary setting, this Romeo and Juliet presents a recognizable world where – still – “civil blood makes civil hands unclean.” This raw, forceful tale of a young love strong enough to overcome deep prejudice knows no time or place, and is as moving today as it ever was.
