The tragedy features two young lovers as they navigate through family politics. The Eureka College production will be set in modern-day America with the Montague and Capulet families representing leaders of two rival political parties. The humor found in many places in the script will be brought to the forefront, thus emphasizing the tragedy of the end, according to theater professor Marty Lynch, who will direct. The production will contain violence and some crude humor.
