My only love sprung from my only hate! 


This summer, the streets of Verona are transported to Hull, as one of the greatest love stories ever told takes place in the breath-taking surroundings of Stage@TheDock. 

When Romeo and Juliet meet at a party it is love at first sight. They then discover they are on opposites sides of a bitter rivalry between their two families. When fighting breaks out in the streets, they form a desperate plan to defy their parents and be together at any cost… 

Shakespeare’s timeless tale of passion and tragedy, set in a divided society, is as fresh and relevant now as it has ever been. Don’t miss the chance to see this sparkling new version, told with live music and in the open air.  

Running Time: Approx. 1 hour 40 minutes (plus an interval/break)

Recommended Age: We believe that Shakespeare can be enjoyed by children of all ages and aim to make this production of Romeo & Juliet as family friendly as possible. However, the play does contain themes of death and violence, sexual reference and is performed in the original Shakespearean language with a running time of 2 hours including interval. We encourage parents and carers to use their discretion as to the suitability for their individual children.
