What’s Happening at Goodwood

A Town Divided

November 29 & 30 | 7:30 PM | Carriage House

A Town Divided, an original production based loosely on William Shakespeare‘s Romeo and Juliet, is written from interviews and stories of Tallahassee residents and examines the racial divides in our own city.

Raw, intense, and emotional, this 50-minute play invites participants to examine their own biases and prejudices in an effort to raise social awareness, increase tolerance, and bridge the divides through cross-racial dialogue.

Please be advised this play contains mature subject matter.

Southern Shakespeare’s upcoming production, in partnership with Tallahassee Community College, Leon County Schools, and Goodwood Museum, and directed by Bert Mitchell, will be held November 29–30 at Goodwood Museum & Gardens.
