Romeo and Juliet – On Tour. 25th September to 11th October 2013

Directed by Gordon Barr
Designed by Carys Hobbs

“These violent delights have violent ends
And in their triumph die, like fire and powder,
Which as they kiss consume”

An ancient feud between the Capulets and Montagues rips apart the city of Verona. A young generation, caught up in its violence and hatred, perpetuates a situation over which they have no control. When Romeo and Juliet, children of the two mortal enemies, meet and fall passionately in love, they set in motion a chain of events that will destroy not only themselves but many of their friends.

First seen at Bard in the Botanics 2012 and acclaimed by audiences and critics alike, this 5-star production retells Shakespeare’s enduring story through the eyes of a younger generation betrayed by their elders and struggling to make sense of their emotions in a world they haven’t created.

What the Press said:

The Herald  – ***** “has a violently youthful relevance for a new generation of 16 year-olds. See it outside or inside, but just see it”

The Scotsman  –  **** “full of wit and understanding….in Glasgow, of all cities, this is a tale that never seems out of date”   –  “An excellent take on the Bard’s tale…filled with all the flaming passions of youth”

What the Audiences said:

“Professional, sexy, beautifully delivered by all concerned – Romeo and Juliet is a MUST”

“Another unbelievable performance, loved every minute”

“one of the best performances of the play I have seen…The cast were amazing”
