Directed by Dominic Dromgoole

Choreographed by Sian Williams

Designed by Simon Daw

Dominic Dromgoole’s production brings refreshing clarity to one of Shakespeare’s most famous and best-loved tragedies, drawing out the contemporary relevance of this passionate teenage love story. Ellie Kendrick, a truly youthful Juliet, and Adetomiwa Edun, a boyish Romeo, head an excellent cast whose period costumes point to the timelessness of parental disapproval, adolescent temperament, rivalry and violence. Filmed before a live audience at Shakespeare’s Globe in the heart of London, its intimate and atmospheric setting adds immediacy and vitality to the humour and passion of Shakespeare’s verse. Filmed in High Definition and true surround sound.

Famous Speeches

“Dromgoole is blessed with a smashing pair of young lovers. Adetomiwa Edun's Romeo is fresh, cheeky, light on his feet and full of the ebullience of young love... The production's secret weapon is Ellie Kendrick... delivers the jewelled verse with a lovely purity and directness. I particularly admired Rawiri Paratene's impassioned Friar Lawrence, Ian Redford as a Capulet, and Tom Stuart's hilarious performance as a socially inept Count Paris” Daily Telegraph
