Most recent performance
There are currently no scheduled performances of Juliet & Romeo. It was last on stage 13–14 April 2019 as part of the Spring 2018/19 season.
Juliet and Romeo, now in their mid-40s, constantly feel the pressure of being the poster couple for young love.
They’re haunted by the image of their teenage selves and decide to put on a performance to confront their struggles.
This new production by Lost Dog performed by Ben Duke and Solène Weinachter tells the story of Shakespeare’s young lovers; except in this version they didn’t die in a tragic misunderstanding but lived not-so-happily ever after. They’re now in their mid-40s, going through a mid-life crisis and trying to escape the pressures of being the poster couple for romantic love.
Lost Dog is an innovative company that combines dance, theatre and comedy to tell stories in unique ways. Juliet & Romeo explores what happens beyond ‘happily ever after’, in a humorous and heartfelt investigation into love, loss and longevity.
