Written by: William Shakespeare
The Globe Theatre is putting on a fast-paced performance of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, designed to introduce students and families to the Bard.
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.
The Globes Theatre's season runs from April to October. Craig has been to see a play himself and thoroughly recommends it. It's not like any other theatre that you have been to. It's open-air for a start, and it has a standing area in the middle. The actors actually use this area for some of the scenes, and involve the crowd as if they are part of the cast. Check out Craig's review before you go, so you can get a feeling for what it's like inside.
