Enter Juliet


  • Playwright

  • Author Notes

    Written with contributions from Ger FitzGibbon.

  • Synopsis

    Enter Juliet is a story of the starving and trapped, of power struggles, lunacy and the stories we tell ourselves to get through the day. Trapped and long since forgotten, our group have fallen into a social order, an order that is challenged by one of their rank producing an ill-remembered mongrel Shakespearean play. They perform and are rewarded with food from a hatch. So they perform again and again... and again... but the food doesn't come. Still they cling to the hope that their patchwork play might save them but are so weak and addled that they can no longer even remember their real names.
