Produced and presented by Fred Theatre
Hosted by The Cockpit
Fred Theatre returns to Shakespeare in spring 2018 with a fresh, energetic, and engaging production of ROMEO & JULIET.
In a contemporary setting, Fred re-tells one of the greatest love stories for the Internet generation, and reveals a play of extremes.
Love and violence. Tragedy and comedy. Extreme euphoria and utter despair.
The production moves quickly, using an edited text that includes all the much loved scenes of a play that appeals to all generations. It explores being young in the twenty-first century. What does it mean to be young and in love today? What are the expectations of, and pressures on young people?
Romeo and Juliet is performed by six actors across 90 minutes and is suitable for ages 14+, especially those studing the play at GCSE level.
