About the event

This modern presentation of Shakespeare’s tragic masterpiece will be performed by Derby Shakespeare Theatre Company in Summer 2024.

“For this alliance may so happy prove, 

To turn your households' rancour to pure love.” Friar Laurence Act 2, Scene 3.

Gang warfare rages on the Verona council estate between the tenants of Capulet Heights and Montague Tower. It’s here where we lay our scene. Romeo loves Rosaline, but she’s having none of it. Juliet’s Dad is throwing a party and you’re all invited. Lovers’ stars are about to get crossed, fates twisted and hearts broken. Romeo ❤️ Juliet.

Catering will be available at these performances.
