Local playwright Donte Clark's modern rendition of the Shakespeare classic "Romeo and Juliet," which sold out the 600-seat auditorium at El Cerrito High School in February, returned for performances June 14 and 15. "Te's Harmony," takes a modern look at family and neighborhood rivalries in Richmond, through a Shakespearean prism. Proceeds from the performances go to local arts programs.
