Following their highly acclaimed production of 'Much Ado About Nothing' in April 2016, Wolf-Sister Productions and Pepe Pryke return to The Rose Playhouse. This time, they present Shakespeare's greatest love story.

Two warring families, the Montagues and the Capulets, find themselves far from home. Caught up in a greater conflict, they have been uprooted to a refugee camp. Before Romeo encounters Juliet, the family feud leads to a street brawl. But when they do meet, they fall passionately in love.

What happens when romance runs counter to family ties? How can Romeo and Juliet protect their love when their world is violent and unstable?

Over 21 million people worldwide are facing life as a refugee today. Over half are under the age of 18. Displaced people can often be portrayed as an undifferentiated mass, rather than as individuals. By using this setting for a familiar tale, this production will draw attention to the complex stories of today's refugees.

The Rose is an indoor archaeological site, it is advisable to dress with an extra layer as there is no heating. There are also no toilets so please use Shakespeare’s Globe just a few hundred metres away.
