Shakespeare's star-crossed lovers died for love in one of the most memorable (albeit fatal) grand romantic gestures of all time. Or did they? Spurred by a tantalizingly simple question -- What if Romeo and Juliet really just faked their own deaths? -- The Ruckus takes you down a rabbit hole that looks an awful lot like The Globe Theatre, sending these young lovers on a spree that's equal parts Tarantino and tragedy in From These Fatal Loins, presented at Berry United Methodist Church in Chicago. Fueled by romance and revenge, our heroes wreak havoc on Verona and the theater alike. God only knows what happens next!
