COMEDY. Adapted from the play by Edmond Rostand. In this comic reversal of Romeo and Juliet, two fathers concoct a fake family feud to make their son and daughter think they are ill-fated lovers and fall in love. Their scheme succeeds, but now the “feuding” fathers need to find a way to reconcile so that the couple can wed. With no expense spared, the fathers hire the mustached rogue, Straforel, to stage a fake abduction that will include torchbearers, swordsmen, and even musicians to provide live background music. Percinet “rescues” Sylvette from her “abductors,” wedding plans are made, and the wall between the fathers’ neighboring properties is torn down. However, it doesn’t take long before the two fathers realize, that in their case, walls make good neighbors!
