A Town Divided: A Story of Shakespeare, Race, and Our City

November 29, 2017 - November 30, 2017

This original production, crafted from the stories of Tallahassee residents, uses William Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet as a framework to examine racial divides in our city.

Raw, intense, and emotional, this 50-minute play invites participants to examine their own biases and prejudices in an effort to raise social awareness, increase tolerance, and bridge the divides through cross-racial dialogue.

Community talk-back to follow, moderated by The Village Square.

Please be advised this play contains mature subject matter.

Directed by Chris Berry, Assistant Professor of Theatre at Florida A&M University
