Romeo and Juliet
About Rome and Juliet
The Woolgatherer’s Romeo and Juliet is an interactive party play that asks guests to make choices about intimacy, fantasy, and escape.
Guests are invited into the world of the Capulet Ball, where Romeo and Juliet see each other for the first time. From that moment on the story plays out as Juliet’s fantasy, full of the ecstasy and terror of first love, sexual desire, and teenage rebellion.
Shakespeare’s text weaves in and out of the party as the actors weave in and out of the crowd. Just as Juliet takes the story into her own hands and forges her own destiny, guests have the power to determine the nature of their experience. A curious guest might find themselves alone with an actor, share their secrets with other guests, or even change the course of the play.
