Corpus Playroom
Sat 1 - Sat 1 April
Young Actors Company

Romeo and Juliet

Two households, both alike in dignity,
In fair Cambridge, where we lay our scene...

Two young people chase a future of joy and love as their violent and unforgiving world implodes around them.
This bold, modern day abridged version breathes new life to a well told story in which desire, dreams and destiny collide.

You will laugh, and then you will cry as Shakespeare's most loved tragedy plays before you, resonating in an entirely new and identifiable way.

This production is recommended for people of all ages.
