From historic feud to ill-fated union, Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet finds new significance this summer in the Globe Theatre.
Verona is sick. Its structures broken and its citizens in a state of desperation. When a system favours the few, the many are left with nothing but unhealthy choices.
Amidst the violence, bloodshed, fear and unrest, two teenagers find unexpected relief in each other. But will love be enough to save them from society’s sickness?
‘Black and portentous must this humour prove
Unless good counsel may the cause remove’
