A must-see for Bard fans, the most iconic of Shakespeare's romantic tragedies returns to the Tudor-esque Globe Theatre in what will be artistic director Emma Rice's final summer season, as part of the Summer Of Love 50th anniversary season! Verona's two-star-crossed lovers must thwart their two respective warring families if they are to be married and reconcile their loved ones. However, the actions of one rash cousin on Juliet's side spurs Romeo into a hasty and deadly action, leading to his exile from Verona.

Juliet's family, meanwhile,are unaware of her marriage and have arranged for her to marry the eligible and wealthy Paris; she must take drastic measures to escape this fate. The rash actions of a few key players, bad timing and harsh justice all reverberate throughout the rest of the play, until its ultimately tragic conclusion.
