Celebrating 15 Seasons of Women’s Adventures on Stage
Adapted from William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet
Conceived by O'Malley Steuerman and Betse Lyons
Written by Aladrian C. Wetzel & Elizabeth Ung
Directed by Susan Stroupe
June 9-25, 2023
Strand’s final production of our 15th Anniversary Season – Storm-Tossed and Star-Crossed: 15 Seasons of Women’s Adventures on Stage – is based in the classic canon, taking Shakespeare’s most-beloved tragic romance and transforming it into a version of the story yet to be seen.
Conceiving Artists - O'Malley Steuerman and Betse Lyons on R/J :
“With a trans Romeo and a fat Juliet at its center, this newly-devised adaptation of the classic tale by William Shakespeare queers more than just the lovers’ relationship: family structures, violence, love, duty, identity, and even death. In every possible aspect of the production, we are centering trans folks, queer folks, fat folks, women, and people of color - all badass artists local to Baltimore. R/J has been a long time in the making, in so many ways, and we can’t wait to finally share it with you.”
All performances take place at 5426 Harford Rd. Baltimore MD 21214.
Mask wearing is required for attendance.
