Groundlings Theatre presents....
‘SHAKESPEARE IN THE SUN’
This year, summer nights will be brought alive with Shakespeare’s most famous story of love at first sight and his sparkling comedy of misunderstandings. Exploding onto the stage with passion and verve, Groundlings Theatre Company brings together a thrilling ensemble in classic dress to present the trials and tribulations of love.
Romeo and Juliet
“Two households, both alike in dignity,
In fair Verona, where we lay our scene,
From ancient grudge break to new mutiny,
Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean.”
What if your first true love was someone you’d been told to hate?
Ripped apart by the bitter divisions of their parents, two young people will risk everything to be together.
Shakespeare’s classic love story grips its audience with intense longing and passion. Marked by an irresistible desire for change, watch as our hero’s verge on a precipice. Will they be the next generation torn by apart historic quarrels or will they spark a revolution?
Presented in traditional Tudor dress with Romeo & Juliet played by all male cast as it would have been in Shakespeare's time.
