Picture of Juliet weeping

RSC Encore presentation of Shakespeare’s most famous story of love at first sight.

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 story explodes with intense passion and an irresistible desire for change. Will this spark a revolution or will division continue to tear through generations?

The show featured Bally Gill and Karen Fishwick in the title roles, and used young people from the different regions visited to perform as the Chorus alongside the professional cast.

This contemporary production played in the Royal Shakespeare Theatre and at the Barbican in London,
