WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
The story of frustrated young (illegally young in modern terms) love and death and the vendetta between two families in a tight-knit Italian community. One of Shakespeare's most popular and enduring dramas it has also been re-done as film, ballet, musical (most notably "West Side Story") and ice spectacular!
Once more ACTORS FROM THE LONDON STAGE returns to The Cockpit after a successful tour of America. Five actors with minimal set and costume vividly re-imagine the dangerous events in the life of Romeo and Juliet. Can new love find a home, in the toxic city streets of Verona?
