The Spokane Shakespeare Society (S3) presents a timeless classic of young love, feuding families, and meddling friends. This imagining of Romeo and Juliet will take the audience on a wild ride, led by the point of view of our two lovers. What can possibly go wrong when two teens decide they know better than everyone else in the world? Join S3, and Riverfront Park for an evening that has something for everyone: love, murder, and plenty of stunning visuals.


Goodnight Desdemona (Good Morning Juliet) is an exuberant comedy and revisioning of Shakespeare’s Othello and Romeo and Juliet. You'll travel from a dusty office in Queen’s University, into the fraught and furious worlds of two of Shakespeare’s best-known tragedies. A little bit of Alice in Wonderland and a lot of Shakespeare, this show will have you laughing at how upside-down their worlds become when an outsider tries to “fix” it. If you ever find yourself yelling at the TV to stop a character from making a bad decision, this show is for you!
