CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 but restrictions were lifted on 19th July 2021 with venues free to run shows to full capacity audiences after that though there are still issues with company members being forced to self-isolate on being 'pinged'. In September it is possible that a COVID vaccination certificate (or exemption) may be mandated for entry. Please note that iUKTDb archive listings between March 2020 and July 2021 may not be accurate as we did not receive details of all rescheduled and cancelled shows.
The 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! When the First World War ended in 1918 the world had changed dramatically. Those who fought became known as âThe Lost Generationâ having never fully recovered from their experiences. This new production of Romeo & Juliet, whilst using Shakespeareâs original text, is set against the backdrop of a post war industrial city. The disaffected youth having suffered and experienced the worst kind of humanity, try to find solace in whatever way they can. Whether that be violence, drugs or love. Can these young people find a way to put an end to the violence and hatred that has been a way of life for so long?Performers Benjamin Fisher, Aimee Parkes, Brendan Jones, Christopher Hughes, Andrew Thomson, Emma Boswell, Robert Lockhart, Matthew Prendergast, Sherry Newton, Bob Dobson, Emma Collins, Stephen Blakely, Adam Greene, Carl Knoghton, Mark Burrell, John Trindle.
