What if your first true love was someone you’d been told to hate? Ripped apart by the bitter divisions of their parents, two young people will risk everything to be together.
The most famous story of love at first sight explodes with intense passion and an irresistible desire for change. Will this spark a revolution, or will division continue to tear through generations? The youthful energy that powers ‘Romeo and Juliet’ all too often proves elusive, the teenage heat and the rapid escalation from passion to tragedy are not easy things to pin down. Erica Whyman’s fresh, engaging production is more successful them most in this respect. It benefits from two hugely appealing performances from Karen Fishwick and Bally Gill as the star-crossed lovers.
