Cary’s Koka Booth Amphitheatre Gives Shakespeare’s Tragedy “Romeo and Juliet” a Civil War Setting

On Oct. 4-6 in Cary’s Koka Booth Amphitheatre, Team Montague and Team Capulet will square off once again for their epic family feud in a modernized community-theater presentation of “Romeo and Juliet,” produced by Deb Royals and directed by Jerry Sipp and starring 27-year-old Ira David Wood IV as Romeo. Originally set during the 14th century in Verona and Mantua, Italy, this late 16th century tragedy of star-crossed lovers by English dramatist William Shakespeare (1564-1616) will now unfold during the era of the American Civil War (1861-65) and be performed under the stars.
