After Juliet - "A glooming peace this morning with it brings..." When Scottish playwright Sharman Macdonald took her then-13-year-old daughter, actress Keira Knightley, to see a production of Romeo & Juliet, Keira asked, "What happened after they died?" Macdonald's After Juliet answers that question in blank verse, following the friends and families of the tragically deceased lovers as they grapple with their loss. The Montagues and the Capulets have been ordered to keep the peace, but their longstanding feud simmers and their tentative truce is threatened as Rosaline plots to avenge her beloved Romeo's death. Will history repeat itself in this highly inventive sequel to one of the world's most beloved plays?
