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!
Five actors blast the company's signature style of urgency, humour and clarity to conjure a stirring, visceral theatrical experience. Merely present their 2nd UK tour, a genderblind repertory company with absolute clarity at the heart of their approach. Minimalist, inventive production design frames productions dripping with energy, packed with ingenuity, delivered for (and with) the audience. Exhilarating, sharp and hilarious, the shows are loved by audiences and acclaimed by critics across the country, offering an authentic Shakespearean experience for the 21st century.
