This award-winning one-act comedy is perfect for competition, college, high school and community theater production. With seven female characters (and

one optional male cahracter), and a simple unit set, In Juliet's Garden can be produced in a wide variety of settings. The show is suitable for round, threequarter- round, and proscenium production.

Juliet Capulet invites four other heroines of Shakespeare's classics (Katharina, Portia, Ophelia and Desdemona) to lunch in her favorite garden in Verona

to discuss 'issues' they all have with their plots. All the ladies have suggestions about how these issues might be remedied. Shakespeare has also been invited, but instead sends an envoy, his literary agent and Editor, Jacqueline de Boys, who attempts to save the day with the help of Juliet's Nurse. This lively fifty-minute one-act comedy sparkles with wit and an in-depth understanding of the characters of these indelible ladies, and their effects on playgoers over the centuries. (Optional ending has a cameo appearance by Shakespeare in the last scene).
