When you are passionately in love, nothing else matters – as seen in Shakespeare’s well known tragedy of Romeo and Juliet. These teen lovers are irresistibly drawn to each other despite an ancient feud between their two families. Defying the hatred and distrust surrounding them, they dare to face all odds to be together. The Heart of America Shakespeare Festival’s SCRIPT-IN-HAND reading of one of the most popular plays in the canon will bring this story to vivid and accessible life. Featuring a cast of local professionals, several who are Festival alumni–come experience the “play-within-the-play” that will be part of this summer’s Festival production of Shakespeare in Love.
