A violent street brawl between their rival families is the prelude to Romeo’s first encounter with Juliet. Despite this, and the fact that Juliet has been promised to another, they fall in love. But any plans for their future happiness are cruelly destroyed by renewed violence between their families, and tragedy begins to unfold.
A small troupe of travelling players takes to the road with Shakespeare’s classic tale of star-crossed lovers. Performed at the Globe and on an Elizabethan-style stage, this stripped-down version breathes new life into one of the greatest of all love stories.
'An authentic and captivating Shakespearean experience that should not be missed’
