Romeo ∞ Juliet - By William Shakespeare, Directed by Charles M Pepiton

Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet is one of the most enduring plays in the English language, but what do we know about it? What do we remember? Why bring the lovers back? Romeo and Juliet die, but the play is not about their death. They love, but the play is not about their passion. If it were about either of these, we might not be told the entire plot in the first 14 lines of the play. Romeo ∞ Juliet is about the transformative power of a choice, despite all evidence and warnings to the contrary, to fully connect with another, that simultaneously selfish and selfless act wherein strength is found in weakness. This new adaptation, using Shakespeare’s original text, is about how such an event can be two very contradictory yet simultaneous moments. Juliet lives as she dies. She heals as she kills. What if we were to allow this dawn song to shift itself back into phase?

The Shape of Things - By Neil LaBute, Directed by Erin Sellers

The Shape of Things asks audiences how far they would go for love, for art, for passion in a modern context with roots in the biblical myth of Adam and Eve. A college student finds himself pulled into a relationship with a charismatic and seductive art major who seeks to sculpt him into society’s “perfect man” as his best friends' engagement crumbles. This show gives audience members a stark look into the consequences of the darker recesses of human desire.

24-Hr Theatre Project

The Gonzaga Department of Theatre & Dance is proud to present our 2nd Annual 24-HR Theatre Project – a series of short plays which are all written, rehearsed, and performed within a 24-hour period. Featuring the writing, directing, and acting of GU students, faculty, and staff, the 24-HR Theatre Project is live theatre at its most chaotic and unpredictable.

At 7:30pm on Friday, August 30th the fun begins, as actors audition and playwrights receive their prompts. By curtain time on Saturday evening, the plays are staged, props and costumes are gathered, lines are memorized, and the show goes on!

Join us for a night of original theatre where anything can, and probably will, happen!

Please Note: These plays may contain mature language and themes, and are not appropriate for children. 

Saturday, August 31, 2019 @ 7:30pm
