BroadWay to English lands in Italy with
Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet has been revisited many and many times. We all know every hidden detail of this huge Masterpiece.
But our #Romeo4Juliet “are” dealing with todays’ multiculturalism which still struggles to progress, especially today, especially today in the UK and throughout Europe.
Will be the young generation able to progress with this matter? And if yes, in which direction?
THE PLOT We are in Scotland, in the 21st century, at St Andrews University: one of the most prestigious Universities of today’s Great Britain.
A Prince of the British Crown is going to start its first year of studies at St Andrews University and with high probability this is the reason why the highest level of British female applications was never recorded before in that University that year: The Prince will probably meet there his future wife and therefore the future Queen of the United Kingdom.
Juliet is a brilliant young student from the British upper class and her parents wish for her a good marriage … she is about to start her first year of studies at St Andrews too.
But Juliet is different: she is a mature girl. The university represents for her a serious commitment, an investment on the study for both her personal and career growth. Despite her parents’ desire she turns her attention elsewhere.
During the University Open Day Juliet meets Romeo, the Italian waiter. She thinks and tells Romeo how curious the coincidence is for both of them: their names are Romeo and Juliet… he laughs but without understanding … he doesn’t know the story.
They read the metrical verses of the original Shakespeare’s play and Juliet is even more in love perceiving Romeo’s deep sensibility in capturing the meaning of the story. Day by day they fall in love.
Reading Shakespeare’s verses they alternate their real life with their theatrical life. They play “the Theatre into the Theatre!”. The true Shakespearian style!
People around them are not able to capture the poetic intents of the twoo lovers.
Romeo is aware that their love story is the Shakespeare’s story which ends in a dramatic way, but their unique moments are much more relevant because of their unique magic spell.
One day un unexpected event suddenly breaks the flow of their idyllic days: Juliet discovers by chance that Romeo has told many and many lies to her about his identity: his name is not Romeo, he is not Italian and not even British. Who is he? Where is he from? Why is he hiding his identity? She soon realizes that Romeo is in danger. She wishes to help him but the risk is very high also for her.
Now the setting of “their Theatre” is leading the two lovers to experience a new déjà vu as in the Sheakespeare’s play: danger for their lifes. But they intend to write their own final.
Is it a returning past or it is a matter of a present that fails to progress?
If Dante has invented the contrast between Montagues’ and Capulets’ families to emphasize the struggle between Guelfi and Ghibellini, and if Shakespeare was inspired by the Great Poet or by other tales from Greek classical world, the question of the intercultural “social aggregation codes” is still a subject of debate today.
A never so up-to-date plot set in today’s UK transformation and not without unexpected blows of scene !
See you soon at Theatre!
