Romeo and Juliet

Written by WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE | DIRECTED BY AUGUST LUNA

APRIL 17-20, 2020

Verona, USA, 1956.

Class war rages between the Capulets, the richest, most powerful family in town, and the Montagues, a huge, tight-knit family from the wrong side of the tracks. Where the Capulets have wealth and stability, the Montagues have camaraderie and a freedom from the misogynistic, gender-focused society they live in.

Director August Luna (they/them) brings a new twist to the classic tale of star-crossed lovers in this 1950s lesbian pulp romance.

Content Warning: this play depicts and deals with themes of violence, intolerance, and suicide. Contact Somniterum with any inquiries.
