Event description

Description

An open-air production of ROMEO & JULIET in the castle courtyard: a dramatic backdrop for one of Shakespeare’s best loved and most accessible plays.

IN A WORLD OF FAKERY, WHAT BECOMES OF TRUE LOVE?


You are invited to an exclusive glittering red-carpet event that will be attended by notorious celebrity families, the Montagues and the Capulets.

With the media reporting their every move, and social media abuzz with their escapades, tensions are running high. There’s only one question on everybody’s lips: will these two families behave, or will it be another fiery battle at dawn as the fabulous feud continues?

Join Heartbreak for this super glam outdoor adaptation of Shakespeare’s star-crossed lovers, Romeo and Juliet. Set in the here and now, and mixing in some modern language, music, and technology, this production explores how one of the most celebrated tales of passionate love would play out in the 21st century. So bring a chair and pack the picnic (after you’ve uploaded it to Instagram, obvs!). Dress to impress and remember to charge your phone, as tweeting, snapchat, and selfies are highly advisable. After all, if you haven’t posted it online, has it even really happened?

Recommended Age: 8+

Running Time: 2 hours Including interval. Gates open 1 hour before the performance start time for you to picnic in style on the lawn. Please arrive no later than 15 minutes before the performance is due to start.
