OVO

Romeo and Juliet

Bridge House Theatre

“Two households, both alike in dignity. In broken Belfast, where we lay our scene...”

A brand-new adaption set on the streets of Northern Ireland’s capital in 1998 - the year that the Good Friday agreement was signed.

"From ancient grudge break to new mutiny, a pair of star-crossed lovers take their lives." Led with movement and a banging 90s soundtrack played by a live band, this is a high paced, modern take on a timeless classic.

OVO’s fresh take shows us that Shakespeare is as relevant today as it’s always been and that a fragile peace is only as durable as opposing sides permit.

Recommended for ages 11+
Content warning: Romeo & Juliet includes scenes of violence and suicide

2 hours 30 including a 20 minute interval

"A gorgeous mix of storytelling and physical theatre with carefully chosen songs, all blending together to produce a heart-stopping show."

★★★★★ LondonTheatre1

"This pacy version of the classic breathes new life into this passionate tragedy."

★★★★ West End Best Friend

"A sparkling new interpretation of a well-loved play presented by multi-talented performers." - St Albans Times
