MAD Company’s “Romeo and Juliet” by William Shakespeare
Set in a postmodern society, MAD Company’s upcoming production of Romeo and Juliet (written by the one-and-only William Shakespeare) tells the story of bitter enemies and the subsequent reconciliation that only a star-crossed romance can offer.

Their short-lived but passionate courtship and marriage sets into motion the events that will forever alter the course of their society, families, and the relationships that surround them.
Regarded as one of the greatest love stories ever written, Romeo and Juliet features a cast of characters and language as indelible as its author. Come bear witness to the danger, glamour, and rhetoric that makes this timeless play immortal.
