Romeo and Julie

19 no. saves icon · New Writing

The National Theatre and Sherman Theatre present Romeo and Julie, a powerful and funny new play inspired by Shakespeare's romantic tragedy.

Overview

Writer Gary Owen and director Rachel O'Riordan reunite following their critically acclaimed productions of Killology and Iphigenia in Splott, recently named by the Guardian as ‘One of the 50 Best Theatre Shows of the 21st Century.’

Romeo is a teenage single dad hanging on tight. Julie is fighting to follow her dream of studying at Cambridge.

Two working-class eighteen year-olds raised a few streets apart, but from entirely different worlds, crash into first love and are knocked off their feet. But at this crossroads to the rest of their lives, both families fear the worst in a world of unequal opportunity.
