Shakespeare's R&J archiveSet in the 1950's at an exclusive boarding school, four pupils run into the chapel late one night in a bid to escape from their repressive school routines. One of them brings a copy of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet and they start acting pieces out. Perceptions and understandings are turned upside down as the fun of play acting turns serious and the words and meanings begin to hit home and universal truths emerge. Told entirely through Shakespeare's language, it is both the story of Romeo and Juliet but more importantly the journey of four lads who during the course of one thrilling evening discover the power of theatre and the new worlds it can open up.
