Royal Shakespeare Company: Romeo & Juliet Encore Broadcast

What if your first true love was someone you’d been told you must hate?

Set in a world very like our own, this Romeo and Juliet is about a generation of young people born into violence and ripped apart by the bitter divisions of their parents. 

The most famous story of love at first sight explodes with intense passion and an irresistible desire for change, but leads all too quickly to heartbreaking consequences.


"The tale of star-crossed lovers is brought into dazzingly sharp relief...From the moment we meet Romeo (Bally Gill) and Juliet (Karen Fishwick), we believe in them as a pulsing flesh and blood couple" - Evening Standard 4*


"Youthful and energetic take on Shakespeare's tragedy" - WhatsOnStage 4*


"Erica Whyman’s production is one of emotional and narrative clarity. It’s refreshing and accessible. It wires the text into our world." - The Stage 4*
