Oh no... Juliet and Romeo have fallen in love but their families are bitter enemies. Join Lecoq-trained actor Penelope Solomon (BBC's Goodnight Sweetheart) in this comedic blitz of physical theatre, puppets and potions. Penelope might need some help to tell the story… Did you know that audiences used to throw rotten fruit at the actors if they didn't like the show? Imagine: 'Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou Romeo?' – Splat! Get the kids on board with the Bard! Fun, family entertainment. 'Solomon's performance makes the show' ***** (ThreeWeeks). ‘Pick of the week’ (Guardian Guide).
