In a world of music, fame and money, Shakespeare’s classic play about love is brought to life in a brand new telling. The Montague and Capulet families are embroiled in a long-running feud and the hatred seems to be impossible to shift. When Romeo, a Montague, attends a Capulet ball in disguise, he falls in love with the beautiful Juliet, and she returns the love. A secret marriage takes place between the two young lovers, but happiness and harmony are not quite in reach as circumstances and fate continue to keep them apart.
Perhaps one of the most famous plays of all time exploded onto the Altrincham Garrick Playhouse Main Stage in 2016, marking the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death. Now, for the first time, it will be streamed into your homes! Experience the power of this tragic love story.
