Romeo and Juliet

  • 20 - 21 April

Event Information

10.30am, 1pm & 7pm

11.30am & 3pm

Running Time: 1 hour

Michael Wicherek’s adaptation fully realises the characters of the lovers and brings to life their world: the sound, heat and colour of Verona, the dark threat of the feud between their families and the ever-increasing speed at which events hurry the lovers to their inevitable doom. It also, through the inclusion of the Narrator ensures that Romeo and Juliet themselves do not remain literary creations distant from the 21st century.
