Odd's Bodkins presents Romeo & Juliet Elizabethan style at The Cornservatory, with modern-anachronistic costuming and a shorter rehearsal process. The end result is a production that is lively, fun, and more spontaneous than traditional productions, with live music and exciting combat scenes. It's also less of a time commitment -- this abridged edit of the bard's most famous play is expected to run about 90 minutes. The play follows the story of two young lovers from warring families. The pointless family feud drives them to desperate measures and ultimately, to death in a timeless story of passion and violence. Odd's Bodkins is a burgeoning independent and original Shakespeare company that raises up the voices of those normally outside the mainstream of theater culture by featuring people of color and LGBTQ performers, and brings a love of Shakespeare to the next generation through workshops and free school performances.
