Director: Erica Whyman; Written by: William Shakespeare; Cast: (the cast may change on different dates) Erica Whyman, Bally Gill, Karen Fishwick

The RSC is putting on a contemporary re-telling of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. It is set in a world much like our own, about a generation of young people born into violence and ripped apart by the bitter divisions.

It tells the story of two young lovers from rival families, forbidden to see each other by their warring parents. Juliet is being willed to marry another man but it proves impossible to keep Romeo away. They soon run away and marry in secret, leading to a tragedy which leads to their death, and their parent's sorrow.

Evening Standard★★★★ – "The tale of star-crossed lovers is brought into dazzingly sharp relief" The Times★★★★ – "Karen Fishwick is a serious delight... flanked by a gorgeous performance by Erica Whyman"
