RSC Live: Romeo & Juliet

ROMEO & JULIET

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 incorporate into the company a handful of pupils from schools across the country; their freshness rubs off onto the rest of the cast." 
The Daily Telegraph

"Wonderfully fresh version has is something rare and precious…an urgent sense that this matters here and now, that young hearts and lives, rather than just iambic pentameters, are at stake."  
Evening Standard
