Romeo and Juliet

“I genuinely thought I could end the trouble once and for all. But I got in too deep. And it all ended badly.

I am the Friar. God forgive me.”

A troubled Friar rushes us through the mutinous streets of Verona, plunging us into a community torn apart by prejudice, conflict and violent crime.

Gripping story-telling, live music and striking visual effects take young audiences on a heart-wrenching journey as they follow Shakespeare’s star crossed lovers towards their tragic end. Guided through Shakespeare’s original text by the Friar, speaking modern English, this is an unforgettable introduction to his devastating love story.

Made for 9 – 13 year olds and their families.

Schools performances, workshops and online resources are also available for KS2 & KS3 (Years 5 to 8). For further info contact or visit
