We're sorry, but we couldn’t find any events
What if your first true love was someone you’d been told to 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 heart-breaking consequences.
RSC Deputy Artistic Director Erica Whyman returns to the Barbican following her acclaimed production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream: A Play for the Nation (2016) with Bally Gill and Karen Fishwick as the star crossed lovers in this violent and devastating tragedy.
