Video Teaser: Rome and Juliet in Reverse, Expatriate Theatre Company, Austin, Streaming from April
(trailer from Expatriate Theatre Company)
In fall 2020, Expatriate Theatre Company brought you online performances of Shelter Out of Place, a new play by Elizabeth Bernhardt, which were praised by audiences:
"Beautiful. So well done. And a joy to behold."
"I was deeply moved."
Continuing our efforts to bring you live theatre in the midst of the global pandemic, we now present a brand new adaptation of one of Shakespeare's most famous works, one which offers its title characters one last chance.
Why this play now?
In the midst of challenging times, it can feel like chaos is inevitable. But what if one choice could change the trajectory of the future? What if one spark could pierce the darkness?
Performed by professional actors, Romeo & Juliet in Reverse moves backwards through Shakespeare's tragic tale, letting us view it from new angles, then revisits the tomb to see if love and life can prevail over death.
