Romeo and Juliet by Shakespeare
odd & meticulous
“The fearful passage of their death-marked love”
We know how it ends. How did it come to this?
As we follow Romeo and Juliet, we discover how brief their brief time together is. We witness how their feelings of isolation and alienation force them to go to extreme lengths to hold onto the only person who they feel truly connected to.
Written over 400 hundred years ago, Romeo and Juliet still presents us with questions that are incredibly relevant: young love & infatuation, conformity & protest, violence & suicide.
Looking solely at the title characters, this intimate, all-male adaptation immerses the audience in the intensity, angst and infatuation of their relationship.
