Victor Harvey Productions in association with The Union Theatre present an extraordinary new interpretation of Shakespeare’s tragic tale.
Romeo: Thus from my lips, by thine, my sin is purged
Romeo and Juliet are two young men forging careers in the beautiful game. But in a world where football is religion, their love threatens to undermine the very foundation of family beliefs and expose the tragic hypocrisy of the world they know.
Juliet: Then have my lips the sin that they have took
This leaner adaptation of Shakespeare’s tragedy uses live music and physical theatre to capture the cacophony, violence and passion of a football stadium.
Directed by Andy Bewley (assistant director on Blue Heart at the Orange Tree and Creative Assistant on JCS at Regent's Park Open Air), Romeo and Juliet will redefine how you view Shakespeare, sport, and masculinity — and no doubt leave you wanting extra time.
Romeo: Sin from thy lips?
O trespass sweetly urged!
Give me my sin again.
