AUGUST 2019 | Volume 182
Poster design by Sandi McDonald
What if Romeo and Juliet didn't die in that double suicide in the Capulet family vault? Instead, they lived into old age, their dazzling love to endure a more commonplace tragedy? Ben Power uses Shakespeare's timeless poetry to create a new, deeply romantic and powerful play, and a strikingly different love story.
A Tender Thing stars Denyse Wilson as Juliet and Troy Skog as Romeo. It is directed by Sarah Rodgers, technical direction by Leighton Taylor, lighting design by Brad Trenaman, costume design by Julie White, set design by R. Todd Parker, stage management by Becky Fitzpatrick and is produced by Linda Begg.
A Tender Thing runs at the Jericho Arts Centre (1675 Discovery) from Sept. 6-29, Thursday through Sunday. All performances at 8 pm except Sundays Sept 15, 22, 29 when there is a 2pm matinée only (no evening performance).
Tickets are $23-$29, and are available on line at www.unitedplayers.com or at the door.
