Love entangled with the end of love.
An astonishing and beautiful reimagining of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet.
Ben Power’s unique and moving play imagines the star-crossed lovers at the end of long lives together. Shakespeare’s original words are woven together into a new, deeply romantic story of loyalty, loss and enduring love.
A huge hit for the RSC in 2009 and 2012, this crisp, contemporary production is steeped in atmosphere, lyricism and heartbreaking romance.
