Welcome to Chiltern Shakespeare Company

Romeo And Juliet 2022

Tuesday 5th to Sunday 10th July 2022

Home Farm

Home Farm on Hall Barn is our new home for our 2022 production of Romeo And Juliet.

We are also reducing the number of performances we will be presenting from ten down to seven, all within a week.  We will still have two matinees and there will be ample opportunities to explore the meadow, picnic by the lake, then enjoy live theatre in or 2022 venue, Home Farm. 

Romeo And Juliet

Set in a city torn apart by feuds and gang warfare, Shakespeare’s immortal drama tells the story of star-crossed lovers, rival dynasties, and bloody revenge. Romeo and Juliet is a hymn to youth and the thrill of forbidden love, charged with sexual passion and violence, but also a warning of death: a dazzling combination of bawdy comedy and high tragedy.

Romeo and Juliet – the star-crossed lovers……

Like the two protagonists, this story never grows old – because we all want to believe in a love that transcends the expected, enables great sacrifice and really can be called “true love”.

In the telling of this most loved of Shakespeare’s stories, weaving together all the elements that make great theatre, we can be transported into the world of the two young lovers who burned so brightly and so briefly, but left an indelible mark in their world and, thanks to William Shakespeare, on ours.

This is a Chiltern Shakespeare Company Production in association with Fourways Theatre Company (https://www.fourways.org.uk).
