Production notes:

We’re now well into developing Act 3, where we find Adam and Eve in their post-Eden hovel. Cold, exposed, and living in deplorable conditions, Adam and Eve are bitter having lost their Paradise and now forced to live in the inhospitable wilderness.

Adam blames Eve for their circumstances, and Eve threatens to end their partnership. Soon, however, they reconcile. With their union intact, Adam is now ready to learn the what’s in store for the near future of the human race. Michael arrives on Earth, and leads Adam to a mountaintop whilst Eve sleeps.

The future of Romeo + Juliet in Second Life has been secured until June 2014 with a generous grant from the Linden Endowment for the Arts (LEA). The Basilique Performing Arts Company has been selected for the LEA’s Round 6 of their Artists-in-Residence program. We were selected among 40+ proposals to receive a full sim to create an interactive exhibit dedicated to the story of Romeo + Juliet.
