Shakespeare or Space WarsReturn

Playwright Rebecca Longworth and Ensemble Source Author William Shakespeare, George Lucas Source Title Romeo and Juliet, Star Wars: A New Hope Producer Idiot String  [Website] Description Impresario Samuel Peaches is finally ready to tackle the role of his dreams in "Romeo and Juliet," and the Peripatetic Players, his eccentric troupe of travelling thespians, are eager to join him. But the troupe’s lead whirygig-maker, Thumper, would rather pay homage to a different classic star-crossed tale of destiny and daring, and sets the Players’ sights on a certain cinematic space opera franchise.

The Peripatetic Players present a mayhem-filled mash-up of both tales aboard FluxWagon, their folding mobile stage, in parks throughout the Bay Area.

Bring a picnic blanket and the whole family for an afternoon of theatrical fun!
