Shakespeare’s classic tale of star-crossed lovers is going on the road and will be coming to Glasgow’s Theatre Royal this August.

In a brand new version of the greatest of all love stories, Romeo & Juliet has been stripped down and will be touring the UK in summer 2015, coming to the Theatre Royal Glasgow from the 4th until the 8th of August 2015.

A violent street brawl between their rival families is the prelude to Romeo’s first encounter with Juliet. Despite this, and the fact Juliet has been promised to another, they fall in love. But any plans for their future happiness are cruelly destroyed by renewed violence between their families and tragedy begins to unfold.

A small troupe of travelling players takes to the road with Shakespeare’s classic tale of star-crossed lovers. Performed at the Globe and on an Elizabethan-style stage, this stripped-down version breathes new life into one of the greatest of all love stories.

Directed by Dominic Dromgoole & Tim Hoare. Designed by Andrew D Edwards. Composed by Bill Barclay.
