Macon, GA. The story has been around for centuries: two young whippersnappers fall in love, despite the strife between their families.
Australian filmmaker Baz Luhrmann updated it in the nineties with Leonardo DiCaprio in his MTV-influenced 'William Shakespeare's Romeo + Juliet.'
Tonight, United by Christ Ministries will present their gospel play version, 'Romeo & Juque-Sha'' at the Douglass Theatre in downtown Macon. It's the story of white Romeo and black Juque-Sha' and how their families deal with the interracial relationship."
