What if your first true love was someone you’d been told you must hate?
Set in a world very like our own, this Romeo and Juliet is about a generation of young people born into violence and ripped apart by the bitter divisions of their parents.
The most famous story of love, at first sight, explodes with intense passion and an irresistible desire for change but leads all too quickly to heartbreaking consequences.
'This must be the most fleet-footed account of Romeo and Juliet since West Side Story. Erica Whyman has done something bold, which is incorporated into the company a handful of pupils from schools across the country; their freshness rubs off onto the rest of the cast.'
- Daily Telegraph
'Youthful and energetic take on Shakespeare's tragedy'
- What's On Stage
'Fresh and engaging'
