Why See Romeo and Juliet?


starring alfred enoch and rebehkah murrell

A must-see for Bard fans, the most iconic of Shakespeare's romantic tragedies returns to the Globe Theatre during Olivier Award-winning theatremaker Michelle Terry's long-awaited second season at the iconic venue. The story of Verona's two-star-crossed lovers and their untimely demise is well known and well-loved, but this dynamic new production spins the tragic tale on its head. Alfred Enoch stars as Romeo alongside Rebekah Murrell as Juliet, directed by Ola Ince in her Globe debut.

What is the story?

Audiences know that Romeo Montague and Juliet Capulet are destined to die. It is the only outcome given their warring families, the deaths of their friends and critical miscommunication. But what if their fate wasn't so final? What if other choices were made and the right messages delivered at the right time? This radical take on Shakespeare's classic is determined to find out.
