This passionate portrayal of Romeo and Juliet will bring you closer than ever before to the intensity and the heartbreak of Shakespeare’s most evocative tragedy.

Duration: 2 hours 30 minutes (including 20 minute interval)
Recommended age: 14+

Peter Evans directs an exquisitely intimate new production of the greatest love story ever told, Romeo and Juliet, starring Jacob Warner (Macbeth, Hamlet) and Rose Riley (Hamlet, Richard 3).

After a chance meeting, an intense but forbidden love is ignited between two young lovers, Romeo and Juliet. And despite the unending, violent feud between their families, they will risk everything to be together.
