|Slogan||:||«Packed with love, family feuds and a dose of comedy, Romeo and Juliet is a full-scale, fast-paced 90 minute performance (with no interval) in the Globe Theatre designed to introduce students and families to Shakespeare.»|
A violent street brawl between their rival families is the prelude to Romeo’s first encounter with Juliet. Despite this, and the fact that Juliet has been promised to another man in marriage, they fall in love. But any plans for their future happiness are cruelly destroyed by renewed violence between the two families – and while the adults remain almost comically preoccupied with their own affairs, among their children a hidden tragedy begins to unfold.
