Here at the Rogue and Peasant Players we combine a love of Shakespeare with new work. We can think of no greater way to exemplify what we are about than this...


When two suicidal young lovers find themselves thrust together in the afterlife, they think they've finally reached "happily ever after." But before they can transform their monumental passion into a love that can stand the test of time, the couple must reconcile the echoes of past mistakes that return to haunt them. Simultaneously humorous and heartbreaking, R+J tells a tale of love, loss, youth, and innocence through a contemporary exploration of one of the most infamous romances of all time.

We will be performing as guest artists at the NYC Theatre lab at 357 West 36th st, 3rd fl, New York NY 10018

May 22nd 8pm
