A Tender Thing

Mar 21–Apr 11

Lunchbox Theatre

"To me, fair friend,
you never can be old,
For as you were 
when first your eye I eyed,
Such seems your beauty still."

What if Romeo and Juliet had lived? This is the question posed in this delicate and profound ""remix"" of the greatest love story ever told. The premise is simple - rather than taking their own lives, the young lovers have grown old together, their dazzling love undimmed, to endure a tragedy of a different sort. Shakespeare's timeless poetry creates a new, deeply romantic and powerful play, and a strikingly different love story.

A TENDER THING is co-produced with The Shakespeare Company.
