ROMEO + JULIET
Teenage love (and hate) live on stage contrasted against retrospective on- screen interviews with the play’s minor characters. This is an emotionally charged, succinct retelling of Shakespeare’s classic, interwoven with unique perspectives of grieving (and regretful) key players as they consider what they would have done differently if they had their time again.
We’ve shaken off the dust and contemporised the characters and situations (while remaining 100% authentic to the language) to make this classic play live and breathe again for your students.
By hearing from those who mourn these young lovers, opportunities open up for assessment questions around blame and intention. Also, the show covers every key scene between Romeo and Juliet, allowing their complete love story to flourish.
