Romeo & Juliet

Fri 8 Nov 2013

This innovative production intertwines Shakespeare’s text with contemporary language to allow literature’s most famous lovers to speak directly to a 21st century audience. Eloquently communicating to young people and seasoned audiences alike, it sets the universal themes of love and hate, youth and age, passion and responsibility against a soundtrack provided by a live DJ set from Virgil Howe. Michael Wicherek’s adaptation breathes vivid life into the heat and colour of Verona and the star-crossed lovers fighting against fate.
