Forbidden Love is the story of Jessica Alvarez, a young woman determined to take control of her life from a father who spent who has protected her and shielded her from the dangerous world he inhabits. It’s about Jake Rousseau, a man who does what he does out of loyalty; a man who isn’t ready to give his heart to another woman after losing the one he thought he would spend the rest of his life with. It is about Luis Alvarez, a father intent on keeping his daughter safe at all costs – even if she hates him for it. It is the story of a man willing to do anything it takes to wrest a small town from the clutches of organized crime.
In this modern play on William Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet, one young woman will be forced into a tug of war between the man she loves, the father who wants to protect her, and the man who will do anything – anything – to get what he wants . . . no matter the consequences. But in the end, will she succumb, much like her Shakesperean counterpart, to the ravages of two warring families, or will she rise above it all in order to have the life and love she wants?
