Romeo and Juliet Tickets

Set in a world very like our own, this Romeo and Juliet is about a generation of young people born into violence and ripped apart by the bitter divisions of their parents.

Review this show


What if your first true love was someone you’d been told to hate? Shakespeare’s most famous story explodes with intense passion and an irresistible desire for change but leads all too quickly to devastating consequences.

RSC Deputy Artistic Director Erica Whyman is back at the Barbican following her acclaimed production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream: A Play for the Nation in 2016. Bally Gill and Karen Fishwick are the star-crossed lovers, with the professional cast joined by young people from RSC Associate Schools in London who will perform as part of the chorus.

Misfiring millennial take on Shakespeare’s romantic tragedy

The tale of star-crossed lovers is brought into dazzingly sharp relief.

· Evening Standard

The passion and swagger of Bally Gill's infatuated Romeo are emblematic of the overall verve of the production.

· WhatsOnStage

Fresh and engaging

· The Stage

Strong performances
