Marlborough – Ghost Light Players of Metrowest will present a modern take on its 2015 Shakespeare production, “Romeo and Juliet” Friday, June 5, Saturday, June 6, and Friday, June 12, at 8 p.m.; Thursday, June 11, at 7 p.m.; and Sundays, June 7 and 14, at 2 p.m. Performances will be held at First Church in Marlborough, 37 High St.
According to Director Kat Alix-Gaudreau, the troupe will use the well-known play to explore the complex emotions and perspectives surrounding same-sex relationships.
“Same-sex marriage is part of today’s national conversation,” Alix-Gaudreau said. “Ghost Light Players is proud to contribute to that conversation through Shakespeare’s enduring love story. Whatever your perspective, this production will be a thought-provoking exploration of this much debated and very emotional social issue.”
The performance is free to the public with a donation of a nonperishable food item to be donated to the Marlborough Community Cupboard. Last year’s Shakespeare production resulted in a donation of over 700 pounds of food, and Ghost Light Players is hoping to increase that to 900 pounds this year.
