Made In Liverpool TV station filming at the show early doors.

In Oddsocks Romeo and Juliet there’s Nowhere to Run To for the Capulets and Montagues as violent confrontation stalks every meeting, even Down in the Tube Station at Midnight. Meanwhile, Juliet’s Nurse is looking forward to a good old Twist and Shout at the Capulet party, which Romeo’s mates are planning to gatecrash. Romeo has doubts about going to the Capulet Nite Klub but that is where he meets his Juliet, and It Must Be Love. Maybe, just maybe, The Power of Love will end the families’ violent feud. Tybalt has other ideas, and when The Boys Are Back In Town, Romeo gets into a fatal fight that sees two dead and Romeo banished. Juliet is distraught, her father reassures her that Everybody Hurts and he will cheer her up by marrying her to the County Paris. Juliet, desperate to avoid this unwanted wedding, takes the Friar’s sleeping potion and is buried in the family tomb. Romeo, hearing of his lover’s “death” goes to her. In a final act of coincidence and confusion our star-crossed lovers Don’t Fear The Reaper and their parents are left thinking If I Could Turn Back Time.

Parking available in the Anglican Cathedral car park

"In their capable hands it’s bawdy, mad cap and energetic and that perhaps is closer to how Shakespeare might have been presented in Elizabethan times. The subsequent years of academic straight jacketing may have created a stuffy formal view of Shakespeare, keeping it away from the real people, but Oddsocks mission is to change that and it’s working."

Warning: This Shakespeare may contain comedy and electric guitars
