This immersive theatre piece follows the days and hours leading up to a performance of Romeo and Juliet at a small southern university in 1958 where a progressive director has cast a black Romeo and a white Juliet. This immersive theatre experience examines intolerance from multiple vantage points as the audience follows the numerous characters through the nooks and crannies of the Auditorium. Each audience member’s experience is unique in this experimental piece that diverges from traditional theatrical forms.
