Romeo & Juliet

by William Shakespeare

These violent delights have violent ends

And in their triumph die - like fire and powder

Which, as they kiss, consume.

 

In the heat of Verona's streets, at the epicentre of a bitter feud, two young people will risk everything to be together.

This hot-blooded new production of the world's greatest love story is an explosive collision of youth with age, sex with death and love with tragedy. 

Headlong Theatre's recent touring productions include Earthquakes in London, A Midsummer Night’s Dream and ENRON. Their latest London production was Decade, directed by Headlong Artistic Director, Rupert Goold conceived with Associate Director Robert Icke.
