FORT WAYNE, Ind.—Juliet and Romeo. As if it doesn't sound odd enough, imagine that the roles were reversed in the Shakespeare classic. Imagine that Juliet is the bold Montague pursuing they young and impressionable Romeo of the Capulet family.
Join local playwright and Indiana University–Purdue University Fort Wayne (IPFW) English major Jack Cantey in this month's University Community Conversation (UC²) event, where he considers the swap in his version of the play. Actors will read a selection of scenes from Cantey's adaption. A panel discussion will follow.
Moderators will discuss Shakespeare, gender, and language.
Juliet and Romeo takes place Thursday, April 10, in Neff Hall, Room 101, at 7 p.m. This event is free and open to the public.
