About Romeo and Juliet

Set in a world very like our own, this Romeo and Juliet is about a generation of young people born into violence and ripped apart by the bitter divisions of their parents.

What if your first true love was someone you’d been told to hate? Shakespeare’s most famous story explodes with intense passion and an irresistible desire for change but leads all too quickly to devastating consequences.

RSC Deputy Artistic Director Erica Whyman is back at the Barbican following her acclaimed production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream: A Play for the Nation in 2016. Bally Gill and Karen Fishwick are the star-crossed lovers, with the professional cast joined by young people from RSC Associate Schools in London who will perform as part of the chorus.
