Written by: Conceptual adaptation of William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet Directed by: Mitchell Cushman The Last of Romeo and Juliet, a conceptual adaptation of Shakespeare’s tragedy, will be set in a Canadian retirement home. In our version, Romeo and Juliet will be played by actors in their 70s whereas their parents will be played by actors of the biological age to be their children. Through this relocating of Shakespeare’s text, the production will explore the “fated powerlessness” and subject of “old love”, which can feel more impossible and just as star-crossed as that experienced by Romeo and Juliet.
