The Jamestown Arts Center is thrilled to announce the continuation of our partnership with the Brown/Trinity Rep MFA Programs with this fourth annual presentation of two Shakespeare plays.
“What’s in a name? That which we call a rose, By any other word would smell as sweet.”
In a society that will not accept their love, two women from feuding families will stop at nothing to be together. This play is one of the most enduring love stories and greatest tragedies of all time.

Julia Atwood, Rachel Clausen, Sinan Eczacibasi, Alexis Green, Matt Ketai, Gwen Kingston, Jake Loewenthal, Maggie Mason, Ashley Mitchell, Marina Morrissey, Laura Payne, David Samuel, Chris Stahl, Will Turner, Lucy Van Atta, Alec Weinberg, Brad Wilson.
