Shakespeare for the Masses is back with an end of March love story. Romeo and Juliet is taking center stage but with a twist. Brian Ditchfield will play Romeo; the rest of the cast — including Scott Barrow, Molly Purves, Jill Macy, Chelsea McCarthy and Nicole Galland — will play Juliet.

Leave it to this group to go for the gusto.

The shows are free and run under an hour. Think not Shakespeare abridged but rather Shakespeare unbound.

The shows take place at the Martha’s Vineyard Playhouse on Saturday, March 30 at 7 p.m. and Sunday, March 31 at 2 p.m.
