Our Next Production
Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, adapted by Jo Emery
We’re delighted to be performing an abridged, 100 minute modern adaptation of the classic Shakespeare tragedy featuring the famous “two star- crossed lovers” Romeo and Juliet.
Two powerful and violent ‘underworld’ families, the Capulets and the Montagues, operate their nefarious shady business on the streets of the City, divided by bitter hatred in their struggle to keep the upper hand. Unbeknownst to them, Romeo, Montague’s son and Juliet, Capulet’s daughter, have fallen hopelessly in love, contradicting their parent’s wishes. When the venomous rivalry of these two clans erupts once too often, it sets off a tragic chain reaction of events, leading to fatal and heart breaking consequences for their beloved children, and uniting the warring families in final and grief stricken peace.
Please note this production contains scenes of suicide, death, violence, scenes of a sexual nature and the use of flick knives. Recommended for ages 14+. Running time is approximately 1 hour 50 minutes including a 20-minute interval.
