A Tender Thing by Ben Power

What if Romeo and Juliet had lived? This is the question posed in this delicate and profound “remix” of the greatest love story ever told. The premise is simple – rather than taking their own lives, the young lovers have grown old together, their dazzling love undimmed, to endure a tragedy of a different sort. Shakespeare’s timeless poetry creates a new, deeply romantic and powerful play, and a strikingly different love story.

Audio Descriptions/Touch Tour

For blind or visually impaired audience members we provide pre-show Touch Tours and Audio Described Performances. A touch tour is an opportunity for tactile exploration of the theatre prior to the show. One of our hosts will guide audience members while they explore the set, props, and costumes of the play. The hosts will also introduce the audience to actors and can answer any questions.

During the show an actor describes the visual elements of the performance in real-time through headphones
