Come celebrate Repercussion Theatre’s 30th season of Shakespeare-in-the-Park with a contemporary, gender-bent take on a classic love story: Romeo & Juliet: Love is Love. Bring a chair and enjoy the bard under the stars in Westmount Park.
In this tragic tale of young love and old grudges, we enter a world calcified by hate. As two young people gallop full speed towards love, they are broken by (and ultimately break down) the walls erected by the previous generation. With a cast of ten dynamic performers, an eye-catching design and live music, this show is not to be missed.
