ROMEO AND JULIET
Oddsocks are returning with their mods and rockers themed Romeo & Juliet which featured in The Guardian Readers Favourite Theatre of 2017.

Set on the Brighton seafront amidst the chaotic background of music and style division the mods and rockers proclaimed, audiences can expect nothing short of Oddsocks' famous chaos and comedy as they turn Shakespeare’s greatest love story on its head, set to a swinging soundtrack of classics.

Our seaside loving Capulets and Montagues have violent confrontation on their minds, even Down in the Tube Station at Midnight. Meanwhile, romantic Romeo is moping to the Rhythm of the Rain for his latest unrequited love! He’s in for a surprise at the Capulet Party where Capulet likes his Black Betty and Juliet’s Nurse thinks her Sweet Child of Mine is falling in love. Romeo’s mates gatecrash the party and bang, Be Bop a Lula He’s My Baby.

Maybe, just maybe, The Power of Love will end the families’ violent feud.
Tybalt has other ideas, and because he’s Born To Be Wild, he gets into a fatal fight that sees two dead and Romeo banished. Juliet is left Chasing Cars and Every Breath is watched by her father. 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” speeds to her and in a final climax of coincidence and confusion our star-crossed lovers bring the story to a tragic end. The Special ending will make sure You’re Wondering Now where to get your tickets!

Romeo and Juliet is arguably Shakespeare’s most famous play. The feuding families, the Montagues and the Capulets are the backdrop for the young star-crossed lovers, Romeo and Juliet, to fall in love amidst the surrounding violence and chaos. Although despite being a tragedy, Oddsocks are more likely to have you in tears of laughter rather than of sadness.
