Set in a dystopian kingdom, this Summer we reimagine two of Shakespeare’s greatest plays.
Richard III is a dark struggle for power in one deeply unhappy family, with bodies left strewn across the floor. In this mess, only someone truly ruthless can rise to the top. A gripping thriller shot through with black humour, Shakespeare’s greatest anti-hero comes to life.
Meanwhile in the same kingdom, the romance of Romeo and Juliet looks like it could bring peace to two warring families – until events intervene and tragedy strikes. Romantic, sweeping, action packed it’s the ultimate feel-good story – until it all goes horribly wrong.
Fast paced, thrilling and romantic these two plays will make for a perfect night out at the theatre, with something for Bard experts and complete newbies.
