Romeo and Juliet

Two teenagers, born into a world seething with hate, meet one fateful night and fall in love. Shakespeare’s classic tale of star-crossed lovers is electrifed in this contemporary, highly physical production.

Designed for students, and at a cracking 90 minutes, this will be an in-theatre experience that is sure to grip the hearts and minds of today’s teenagers. From high comedy and first love to aching tragedy, join the Montagues and Capulets in this hot Verona summer.
