The Shakespeare Project of Chicago will present "50-Minute Romeo and Juliet" at the Park Ridge Public Library. A discussion with actors and audience follows the performance. Pre-registration is required.

Adapted by Barbara Zahora, Michelle Shupe and Peter Garino, , “50‐Minute Romeo and Juliet” presents an abridged telling of Shakespeare’s most enduring love story that places an enhanced emphasis on the journey of the star‐crossed lovers. Utilizing four actors*, two which play Romeo and Juliet and two which play all other supporting roles,
“50‐Minute Romeo and Juliet” contains many of The Bard's most famous lines and speeches while retaining much of his saga's pathos, poetry and passion.
The Shakespeare Project of Chicago premiered “50‐Minute Romeo and Juliet” at Chicago’s Newberry Library on September 14, 2011 and played local schools during a tour in February through May 2012.
You must pre-register for this program via the Park Ridge Library's website, or phone the Library to make your reservation.
