Written by Romeo and Juliet cast member and Grassroots Shakespeare Company All-Star, Daniel Fenton Anderson:
One of the aspects of this style that I love is how quick our shows pull together. This show will have less than a week before we have an audience–much like Shakespeare’s plays would have been rehearsed. Even the story of this play is wound tight under the looming face of time. The whole events of Romeo & Juliet take place in a total of five days. Five days! That’s nothing! And that’s what I find so exciting. We put these shows together under such a tight deadline, with such minimal resources, and yet we strive to do it with such passion and desire to share that passion with others. Each of these shows is a gargantuan labour of love, and I can’t wait to share what I love with people this Valentine’s Day.
Daniel will be playing the Nurse in Romeo and Juliet.
