“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.

Exeter Northcott Theatre and Le Navet Bete's Dick Whittington artwork. Background: a foggy panorama photo of the city of London, with iconic buildings such as Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament, and St Paul's Cathedral. The cityscape is washed over with a burgundy haze. Foreground: A black and white cat (black body, white neck collar, white paws) looks towards the cityscape and we see them in near silhouette. They are stood on a yellow-brick path, with green grassy hills either side of them. On the hills, grey rats with large red eyes. On the left hand side of the cat, a rat holds a stereotypical hobo sack on a stick. At the top of the artwork, gold text reads: 'Exeter Northcott Theatre and Le Navet Bete present Dick Whittington.' Another group of rats with large red eyes are playing around the letters in 'Dick Whittington'. A cat paw icon replaces the dot on top of the letter 'I' in 'Dick', and a block of cheese replaces the dot on top of the second letter 'I' in 'Whittington.
