A loose adaptation of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, Cactus moves the events to the Arizona border. Two conflicting vampire families patrol the area; one working with the United States Government to kill illegal border crossers, the other protecting them. When Ron and Julie, two seemingly teenaged vampires from the opposing clans, fall in love, will it bring their families closer together, or farther apart?
Cactus is a play about doing whatever it takes to protect the people you care about, and the dangers that can complicate that.
