Purple Ostrich Productions reimagines Romeo and Juliet as a gender-swapped music-laden love-fest.

Overview

Set on an estate in South-East London, where the young people are left to their own devices and where carrying a knife is second nature we follow the tragic journey of these two lovers over the course of 90 blood pumping minutes.

Meet Romea, a love-obsessed poet who will do anything to have sex and Julian, a young man who prizes his virginity above everything else.

As well as the eponymous lovers’ genders being swapped we also have a female Benvolia and a female Prince. This has changed many of the relationships and the power dynamics in the play.

This show is a piece which explores female sexuality and power. In the year of #metoo the company wanted to explore the world’s most famous love story and see what we can learn from examining Romeo’s behavior. Swapping the genders very obviously highlights moments which are absurd or are stalking dressed up as romance.
