Romeo & Juliet
adapted from Shakespeare
Your family teaches you to hate
You fall for a forbidden foe
You act without thinking and risk everything to be together
A hostile and dangerous city. Two families wage a bitter war. Death threats are shouted brazenly in the streets. Will a young innocent couple become a sacrifice of this hateful feud?
This pacy and inventive 80-minute adaptation of Shakespeare’s romantic tragedy is specially created for students and teachers of English and Drama - and anyone new to the play.
Following on from last year’s successful and critically acclaimed production of DNA, The New Wolsey Theatre proudly brings together the very best of East Anglia’s emerging talent to devise a contemporary and playful ‘Romeo & Juliet’ for audiences of today.
“If you haven’t seen this classic play, then it’s a good opportunity to experience a pretty slick version and to see some of the best emerging talent in the region at the same time.” British Theatre Guide review for DNA, 2023
Presented by The New Wolsey Theatre
