Bare Theatre's 13th season finds us returning to one of Shakespeare's masterpieces, Romeo & Juliet.

Romeo & Juliet is the timeless tale of two young lovers torn apart by the feud between their families, the Capulets and Montagues. Bare Theatre’s production will embrace an outdoor setting, epic sword fights, and lavish, Elizabethan costumes similar to how the play would have been performed at Shakespeare’s Globe Theater. The classic tale of two families that cannot find compromise, even at the expense of the lives of their children, resonates with modern day struggles, and speaks to the terrible costs of such division within our communities.

Bare Theatre, under the direction of Lucinda Danner Gainey, will give audiences an experience of live theatre very much like Shakespeare's company did.  All performances take place in the gorgeous open air at Chapel Hill's Forest Theatre during the afternoon.

Risks and challenges

The biggest challenge to any outdoor production is weather, but we've got plenty of performances to offer. We recommend that audience members keep an eye on the weather, and of course stay tuned to Bare Theatre's Facebook and Twitter pages, and maybe have an alternate date or two in mind when you plan your outing with us.
