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.
