'These violent delights have violent ends...'
Following on from the success of Macbeth, the highly acclaimed Icarus Theatre Collective presents a bold and exciting new production of Shakespeare’s most tragic tale – Romeo & Juliet as part of an international tour.
In defiance of their families and in secrecy from their closest friends, hopeful young lives burn amidst a celestial and cataclysmic backdrop. The sun and moon shine down on star-crossed lovers as they hide their passion and sexuality from their warring families and their closest friends. Misadventure, family pride and ancient quarrels abort and bury the most joyous of beginnings. In the most hopeful of love stories, Romeo & Juliet, driven apart, find their world becoming a constricting, single mausoleum of fate and death.
