RSC's Romeo & Juliet

Drama
This event has passed.

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.

The most famous story of love at first sight explodes with intense passion and an irresistible desire for change. Will this spark a revolution, or will division continue to tear through generations?

On Friday 22 February, there will be a ‘semi-integrated’ interpretation, where the interpreter is in costume and up close with the actors, allowing for a more immersive experience.
