Star Crossed

A Drama

A challenging two-hander for two 17 year-old girls set in Belfast during the Troubles.

 

It is Belfast, in 1980. Two young girls from opposite sides of the religious divide meet at a community project to read a play: William Shakespeare's "Romeo & Juliet". Elizabeth is Protestant; Bernadette is Catholic and in a wheelchair. Their relationship, stormy at first, gradually matures as they read. Throughout, the play resonates with their own situation. But is their friendship doomed too, like that of the 'star-crossed lovers'?
