Romeo (played by Ella Mock of Portland) gazes across the ball at Juliet during Sound & Fury’s production of “Romeo and Juliet.” Mock is one of the founders of Sound & Fury, a theater company focused on making Shakespeare accessible and affordable for the public. “A lot of people can’t see full productions because they’re too expensive. We wanted to perform Shakespeare that still means something. This theme of being ostracized for who you love is still relevant today,” Mock said.
