Romeo and Juliet
Written by William Shakespeare
Directed by Gillian Jackson
Romeo and Juliet is set in Verona – a city torn apart by rivalry between two powerful households, the Capulets and Montagues.
Shakespeare tells the story of two young lovers caught up in their parents long standing feud. Their love triggers off revenge, killings and their own tragic ends within the space of a few days. The action of the play is fast with violence changing from danger to bawdy humour to romantic love.
Romeo and Juliet tells a story from the past but serves as a reminder to us today that prejudice leads to mindless violence and unnecessary death and suffering.
