Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare
Theater Coup d’Etat, Nov 8-17, 8pm, Southern Theater, http://www.theatrecoupdetat.com/
Theatre Coup d'Etat invites you to experience the timeless tale of William Shakespeare's Romeo & Juliet, this time told with a twist. Due to the vote on the marriage amendment, and in an effort to uphold their mission to provoke an emotional and analytical response in their audiences, Theatre Coup d'Etat will be presenting William Shakespeare's Romeo & Juliet with Romeo played by a woman, as a woman. The company was formed in 2011 by James Napoleon Stone and Peter Beard on the idea that theatre should be used as a social tool to provoke, not to sedate.

Old Times by Harold Pinter
Nightpath Theatre, Loring Alley Theater, Nov 8-17, 7:30pm, http://nightpaththeatre.com/
Harold Pinter's Old Times is a three-person play with strong currents of sexual rivalry. At the start, Deeley and Kate, a married couple cloistered in a small country house, are awaiting the arrival of Kate's old roommate, Anna from their wild days as young women in postwar London. No sooner does Anna arrive than she and Deeley begin dueling over Kate. What follows is a titillating game of memory, intrigue and power, where nothing is as it seems, or is it?
