Middle School Play

Middle School presents Romeo and Juliet

Arguably the most famous love story in English Literature, Romeo and Juliet tells the tragic tale of love in its most passionate, violent and overpowering state. It examines how this powerful emotion drives the young lovers to defy their entire social world.

By giving us a thorough examination of a character’s fatal flaw, and the inevitable catastrophe that ensues, tragedy, as a genre, is meant to inform audiences about human existence. The sense of catharsis we obtain from watching tragedies on stage helps to ensure that we emerge from the theatre more grounded and aware of others and our surroundings.

Our production is a fast-paced, modern retelling of the classic love story. Shakespeare’s tale of two star-crossed lovers and their feuding families is an unflinching exploration of how love runs, and can ruin, our lives. Love, paradoxically, consumes us, confuses us and yet ultimately confirms for us exactly what it means to be alive.

Love dares you.
