Why See Romeo and Juliet?
The Iconic tragedy reimagined
A must-see for Bard fans, the most iconic of Shakespeare's romantic tragedies returns to the Tudor-esque Globe Theatre during Olivier Award-winning theatremaker Michelle Terry's 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.
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.
Opening night: 14 April 2020
