Rubbish Shakespeare: Romeo & Juliet
Underbelly: Family Shows
About Rubbish Shakespeare
Enemies. Balconies. Kissing. Sausage Rolls?!
Oh yes, Shakespeare's epic tale of star-crossed lovers has been "Rubbished."
Sporting a national reputation - from Edinburgh Festival Fringe to collaborations with the Royal Shakespeare Company and national school tours - this all-male, all-silly, troupe present an hour of multi-roling, wigs, water, and floppy swords. It’s Shakespeare's most anarchic tragedy yet!
Cheer as Romeo and his bearded beloved meet. Celebrate as they marry and unite their warring families, guffaw as all the while our four highly-strung performers squabble, bicker and strive to have the last laugh.
Rubbish Shakespeare: Romeo and Juliet is perfect, both as an introduction to Shakespeare or for even the most ardent fan of the bard - from wide-eyed schoolboy to cultured Nan and everything in between. A true family show that really is Shakespeare For All.
Suitable for ages 4+
