I Am for You by Mieko Ouchi
Tybalt, you rat-catcher, will you walk?
What wouldst thou have with me?
Good king of cats, nothing but one of your nine lives…
I am for you.
At first glance, Lainie and Mariam look like any two girls in any High School across Canada. But when they get into a violent physical fight in their drama room, Mr. Morris, an ex-professional actor and newly minted student teacher takes them on as a special project, helping them understand more about the roots and costs of violence through the art of stage combat… and ultimately the famous fight between Mercutio and Tybalt for their school’s production of Romeo and Juliet. Swords, words and egos come to blows.. Can they find a way to work together?
A powerhouse premiere from a Governor General Award nominated playwright that will have young audiences literally on the edge of their seats.
