Romeo and Juliet - Shakespeare Up Close archiveThe story of frustrated young (illegally young in modern terms) love and death and the vendetta between two families in a tight-knit Italian community. One of Shakespeare's most popular and enduring dramas it has also been re-done as film, ballet, musical (most notably "West Side Story") and ice spectacular! Summer 2016. London. A city of extremes. Where the whole neighbourhood has been divided by the lines of wealth. A world of street fights, catcalling and banter. A boy gatecrashes a fancy party and falls in love, for at least the second time that week. But this girl is different. She doesn't want to hear his lines and she's not interested in his moves. And he realises that she is the best and the worst thing that could ever have happened to him. They fall in love, and the world comes crashing down. Physical, fast paced and furious - this Romeo and Juliet combines dance, physical theatre and gymnastics into this brutal, beautiful tale of love and hate. Told in 90 minutes with an ensemble cast of 6, this is Shakespeare with speed. Bold directorial and design choices make it ideal for drama students who need to review live performances, as well as students studying the text in detail.
