Romeo and Juliet4
Streaming filmed version
By Robert Iles
It has been so long wince we went to the theatre and even longer since we heard Shakespeare out loud that this was a real treat for the ears. Actually it is not my favourite play, but never mind that, it was still an enjoyable experience. Set in modern times, around deserted theatres, this was definitely a lockdown production. Sam Tutty is a very convincing Romeo, elegantly delivering the speeches and giving us a delightfully watchable performance. Certainly the strongest performer (Derek Jacobi is only there for the prologue) though there are no real weak players here. Balancing a "stage" performance with a lack of audience is clearly hard, there is nothing for them to feed off, and the final bow, with only the cast clapping, is quite heart wrenching.
