Description

With Lost Dog’s blend of dance, theatre and comedy, this duet reveals the real story of Romeo and Juliet. It turns out they didn’t die in a tragic misunderstanding, they grew up and lived happily ever after. Well, they lived at least. Now they are 40ish. They feel constantly mocked by their teenage selves and haunted by the pressures of being the poster couple for romantic love. Directed by award-winning Ben Duke, Juliet & Romeo tackles our cultural obsession with youth and our inevitable issues with longevity. Part of the British Council Edinburgh Showcase 2019. **** (Guardian).

Both humourous and sad, Juliet and Romeo by Lost Dog company, presented by The Place, written with sensitive forensic analysis and directed by Ben Duke, is a subversion of Shakespeare. In this version the couple do not die and, now in their forties with a child, are struggling with their...
