Up NEXT at UFV Theatre
Romeo and Juliet
March 5 - 23, 2014
By William Shakespeare
Adapted and Directed by Paul Gélineau
Adapted from the original play into a post-apocalyptic version of Shakespeare's timeless text, Paul Gélineau directs an exciting production full of seductive love poetry and thrilling stage combat. Paul is a UFV Theatre Sessional Instructor and award-winning Fight Director with Fight Directors Canada.
Contemporary audiences will enjoy a sensuous look at one of the world's most tragic tales. In a world of violence and chaos, a pair of star-cross'd lovers take their lives. They live in a place not unlike what our near future may hold, and in this world, we learn about Fate and her lessons about hatred and intolerance.
