Romeo and Juliet

Set in a time and place suffering the ravages of plague and social division, William Shakespeare’s ageless tale of the “star cross’d lovers” Romeo and Juliet still has the raw power to connect in visceral ways. Fiery passions lead to fateful outcomes as the two impetuous teenagers succumb to their irrepressible attraction, despite the long and bloody feud waged by their warring families. As riveting today as when it first appeared in print 425 years ago, Romeo and Juliet is a story of love, intrigue and danger that will leave you breathless until its shockingly tragic end. April 8-10 & 12-15, 2022 at Drayton Hall Theatre. Show Times: 8 p.m. Tuesday-Saturday; 3 p.m. Sunday and first Saturday.
