Robbie O, a typical tracksuit wearing Oldham lad, and Judy, a beautiful Bengali student of Oldham College, come from very different backgrounds and live very different lives. When the star-crossed pair meet and fall in love, their relationship is faced with conflict from all sides. This summer Oldham Coliseum moves into Alexandra Park for the company's first ever open air theatre production, the World Premiere of Star- Cross'd - Oldham's very own take on Romeo and Juliet.The traditional version of Romeo and Juliet ends in inevitable tragedy - but in Oldham we do things differently. Prepare for a few surprises thanks to the Oldham Theatre Workshop, a variety of dance companies, a brass band, a sprinkle of magic and a whole lotta love. Star-Cross'd is performed promenade style, moving around Oldham's beautiful park. So pack a picnic, some comfortable shoes and a plastic mac (just in case), and join us for what promises to be the outdoor event of the year. Performers Mina Anwar (Nurse/WPC Escalus), Ian Aspinall (Capulet), Adam Barlow (Robbie), Sushil Chudasama (Greg/Parvez), Matt Connor (Ben), John Elkington (Old Montague/Loz), Anjli Mohindra (Judama), Guy Rhys (Tyb).
