Love&Madness present Romeo and Juliet.
Tickets £8.50 / £6.50 concessions.
Separated by their fathers' bitter rivalry, Juliet and Romeo experience a first love that is truly forbidden. In the long hot summer they pray for the private night to be alone - away from the blistering passions of masculine honour and the vicious cycle of violence brought on by their families' ongoing feud. In this cruel adult world of pride, envy and greed, youth and innocence have no place, and Romeo and Juliet must go to desperate measures to be together.
Love&Madness are pleased to welcome Owen Horsley onboard to direct. After three years with Cheek by Jowl, his recent Edward II got rave reviews in London.
Please note, there is an additional performance of Romeo & Juliet in the Rose Theatre at 7:30pm on Monday 28th September.
