What It’s About

20 years after establishing a Tampa Bay area tradition, Jobsite finally tackles the Bard’s most famous play. It’s 1985: an unprecedented epidemic and social unrest compete for the soul of our nation (sound familiar?) as Romeo and Juliet, the offspring of sworn enemies, defy their world by choosing love over hate. As relevant today as it was in 1595, this production uses the backdrop of the 1980s to explore the entrenched polarization that dominates contemporary culture and the tragic costs of intolerance and division. Jobsite’s Romeo & Juliet features an 80s-influenced original score by resident composer Jeremy Douglass and high-definition video design by director David M. Jenkins. Jobsite’s approach to Shakespeare has historically been powered by sociocultural influence, and this will be no exception with inspiration drawn heavily from two other pastiches set in the 1980s – Stranger Things and the graphic novel Prince of Cats.
