About

A gatecrashed party. A chance meeting. Love at first sight. This version of Romeo and Juliet uses an edited version of the original language to create the perfect introduction to Shakespeare.

‘My bounty is as boundless as the sea
My love as deep; the more I give to thee
The more I have for both are infinite'

When Romeo meets Juliet, the worlds around them melts away. But then reality kicks in; their families are enemies, and they will never be allowed to stay together. With the world against them, they hatch a plan to escape the lives they were born into. But fate has other ideas.

Following the success of last year’s sell out Twelfth Night, the latest in our series of First Encounters productions makes Shakespeare's star cross'd lovers relevant for a new generation of theatregoers.

This version of Romeo and Juliet, edited by Robin Belfield and directed by Philip J Morris, uses original language to create the perfect introduction for young people aged 8-13 and their families.
