“What light through yonder window breaks?”

One of Shakespeare’s greatest tragedies will electrify our stage in a visual feast as two young lovers are caught between their two rival households. Can love conquer over hate? Artistic Director, Kayvon Khoshkam, with his first Shakespeare production for SOTS, brings classic style and contemporary influences together to make a Romeo + Juliet for all time.
