Auckland Theatre Company
Romeo and Juliet live in a world where passions run high; a city torn apart by a bloody family feud. They should be mortal enemies. But they fall in love and marry in secret.
However, their joy is short-lived. Juliet's father has another future mapped out for his teenage daughter and Romeo's fatal mistake sees their young lives and irresistible love spiral down to heart-breaking loss.
Shakespeare's glorious and timeless classic vividly captures the beauty, intensity and ultimate fragility of young love in a hot-blooded and hostile world.
