FARCE. The laughs never end in this wacky Wild West version of Romeo and Juliet. Romeo Earp crashes the Oakley’s Harvest Festival, and it’s love at first sight when he spies Juliet Oakley. The only problem is that the Oakleys and Earps are sworn enemies. How will Juliet tell her dad that she’s fallen in love with a boy he hates worse than burnt cornbread and ward off Deputy Martin who already has his sights set on marrying up with her? To make matters worse, Romeo accidentally kills Juliet’s cousin and is banished from Possum Trot. Still wantin’ to marry her sweet, brave, murderin’ Romeo, Juliet drinks from a bottle labeled “Almost Poison” despite Preacher Lawrence’s advice: “If you find yourself in a hole, the first thing to do is stop diggin’.”
