A young boy and girl meet by chance and fall instantly in love, but their families are bitter enemies. In order to be together the two lovers must be prepared to risk everything. In this re-imagining of Shakespeare's timeless, classic play of love, hatred and tragedy, a small company of actors bring the story to life, exchanging roles and challenging our preconceptions of who these characters are.

When Ren and his mother move from Chicago to a small farming town, Ren is prepared for the inevitable adjustment period at his new high school. What he isn't prepared for are the rigorous local edicts, including a ban on dancing instituted by the local preacher, determined to exercise the control over the town's youth that he cannot command in his own home. The heartfelt story that emerges is of a father longing for the son he lost and of a young man aching for the father who walked out on him.  FOOTLOOSE celebrates the wisdom of listening to young people, guiding them with a warm heart and joining them with an open mind.

Heralded by the Chicago Tribune as "The greatest piece of writing by an American playwright under 30 in a generation or more," this poetic drama, by Tarell McCraney, will leave you amazed. Witness as two brothers fight for their brotherhood and reconcile love lost. Directed by Connecticut Critic's Circle Award wining actor, Aaron Moss, this production is a tour de force, where heightened language, music, dance and West African mythology amalgamate in a contemporary tale that traverses the tenuousness of freedom and the desire to belong and fulfill a longing.
