ROMEO AND JULIET
Following on from the success of BBC 2’s When Romeo Met Juliet, National Youth Theatre brings this electrifying production of Romeo and Juliet to the West End stage. Set in the enticing Skamania/New Wave era of the 80s, against a back-drop of youth unemployment and economic recession, award-winning playwright Lolita Chakrabarti (Red Velvet) has adapted Shakespeare’s beloved tragedy to thrilling effect.
“A rebuff to those who might doubt Shakespeare’s ability to resonate with today’s 'yoof'.” The Telegraph on The BBC’s When Romeo met Juliet.
