Romeo and Juliet
BUY TICKETS 7pm Wednesday 18 July
PLAY broadcast LIVE from the Royal Shakespeare Company
Set in a world very like our own, this Romeo and Juliet is about a generation of young people born into violence and ripped apart by the bitter divisions of their parents.
What if your first true love was someone you’d been told you must hate? The most famous story of love at first sight explodes with intense passion and an irresistible desire for change, but leads all too quickly to heartbreaking consequences.
It’s always refreshing to see one of our major national companies so light on its feet and ready to challenge the received way of doing and presenting things … what this wonderfully fresh version has is something rare and precious when it comes to one of the most over-familiar plays in world drama: an urgent sense that this matters here and now, that young hearts and lives, rather than just iambic pentameters, are at stake. Fiona Mountford, The Standard
