Romeo & Juliet

July 13, 2017 7:00 pm. By William Shakespeare. Directed by Eleanor Crowder. Music Direction by Rachel Eugster.Passions soar and hearts break in this 90-minute version of Shakespeare's love story for all time. Here is love as obsession--love in a time of darkness. Here is craziness in the face of a culture where honour killings are rampant, and death is a better option than marriage to a chosen suitor.Join us outdoors to celebrate the long evenings and warm weather and enjoy theatre that stands the test of time. Bear & Co. brings you an experience close to the touring companies of four hundred years ago. Bring a cool drink or a full picnic, rain-gear in case it mizzles, and bug spray, and watch six actors conjure the warring families of Verona in front of your eyes, while letting you in on the technical fun of staging a play in the open air.Bring a blanket or lawn chair.For other locations, check out our tour schedule on our website.P.S. What a rainy year! But we love an audience wrapped in weatherproof gear.Unless conditions are dangerous (the presence of lightning, or footing so slippery the actors are at risk) the show goes on!. 269 Clare StreetOttawa, ON K1Z 7E3..
