Tragedy and comedy. Fire and ice. From the speed of tragic lovers in Verona, to the sweeping epic that spans over twenty years, the Pearl presents it's first ever mini Shakespeare festival, producing two classic plays on alternating nights.
Romeo and Juliet tells the classic tale of star-crossed lovers in a modern setting at the Pearl.
The Winter's Tale is a magical fairy tale that combines comedy, tragedy, romance, and music in a way that only Shakespeare can.
Following the success of last year's MACBETH, Pearl Shakespeare edits the plays to two hours, and presents Shakespeare in a way that is accessible and entertaining for modern audiences.

Eurydice is an adaptation of the Greek myth, Orpheus, by Sarah Ruhl told from the viewpoint of Eurydice. In this tale, Eurydice has just married Orpheus and on her wedding day is beguiled by a Nasty Interesting Man, who causes her to fall to her death. Upon reaching the Underworld, she encounters Her Father and they attempt to rebuild a life together. Orpheus finds his way through the Gates of Hell. He convinces Hades to allow Eurydice to escape with him as long as they do not look at each other before she’s out of the Underworld. However, in a moment of decisiveness, Eurydice makes a choice that will change the course of fate for everyone forever. This play is a heart breaking and beautiful exploration of love and loss in both in this life and the next. Directed by Renee van Nifterik.
