Bell Shakespeare Company presents:
ROMEO AND JULIET
by William Shakespeare
THE SPARKLING AND FORBIDDEN LOVE AFFAIR THAT ENDS IN TRAGEDY
A ROSE BY ANY OTHER NAME WOULD SMELL AS SWEET ACT 11 SCENE 11
Violence rumbles through the streets, with two families at war. From such angry beginnings flame the fire of passion and forbidden love.
From the first intimate blush to the tragic finale, Romeo And Juliet is a story for all ages. A tale of a chance meeting, love at first sight, the passion of youth, and old family feuds spilling blood.
In a city divided by anger and from rivalling families, Romeo and Juliet come together in a dangerous union of love.
Beautiful and intimate, Romeo And Juliet will be directed by Artistic Director Peter Evans, who will breathe new life into one of the greatest love story’s ever told.
Visually stunning in its nod to the layers of storytelling and the history of the play, it will feature a talented cast, including Alex Williams (Underground:The Julian Assange Story, INXS: Never Tear Us Apart) as Romeo, and Kelli Paterniti (As You Like It) as Juliet.
