Romeo & Juliet
Author(s): William Shakespeare
Company: Royal Exchange Theatre
A reckless, impulsive, boundary-crossing instant can send shockwaves through everything you know. You are seduced, soaring high above the hate and the fury—you’re dancing to a new refrain and the chemistry is awesome. You’re willing to risk it all! It’s perfection.
Just as quickly, it burns out. This contemporary version of Romeo & Juliet is a love-letter to Manchester, a celebration of youth, love and aspiration. A vision of hope in troubled times.
