‘My only love sprung from my only hate!
Too early seen unknown, and known too late!
Prodigious birth of love it is to me,
That I must love a loathed enemy.’


In Verona, violence rules. Two families bear an ancient grudge, and rage flares between them. In a world where greed, wealth and bitter feuds prevail, two disenchanted children dare to choose love.

Two households. Two children. One love. One fate.


This vibrant, volatile take on Romeo and Juliet will fearlessly confront the darker themes present in the play, the grotesque glamorisation of violence, sex and the brutality of death. The production will enjoy a dynamic mix of musical styles and soundscapes, including classical and modern pop.

Don’t miss this bold re-imagining of Shakespeare’s classic story.

Please note: this production contains strobe lighting and guns.
