A Tender Thing
Another Romeo and another Juliet in a strikingly different love story. Shakespeare's language resonates through this account of an older couple whose lifetime of love is under threat. Ben Power has woven the text of Romeo and Juliet
into a provocative new tale of a love that fears no challenge. Re-imagining some of Shakespeare's greatest poetry with an uncommon boldness, A Tender Thing
is an elegiac yet ultimately hopeful account of the depth and power of the human capacity for love.
