Romeo and Juliet
By William Shakespeare
10-12, 16-19 May 2018 at 7.30pm
Matinée 19 May at 2.30pm
This ever-popular and passionately lyrical story of young “star-crossed lovers” is one of Shakespeare’s earliest plays and contains a rich gallery of vividly individualised characters.
Romeo and Juliet’s love for each other is overwhelming and all-consuming. Without the support of either family the two youngsters face some terrible choices.
By setting the play against a modern background, the wonder and intensity of their emotional journey is brought into stark relief, reminding us that Shakespeare is a writer not just for his own age but for all people everywhere.
