About NYT: Romeo and Juliet
It’s 1950s post war London. Teddy girls mix with teddy boys and as immigration booms, so does brutality, prejudice and a ruthless gang culture. The National Youth Theatre’s latest adaption brings you vendettas, violence and star crossed lovers like you’ve never seen them before. Under the compelling direction of Kate Hewitt Britain’s best young talent return to the heart of London’s West End with this enduring Shakespearean tale following three critically acclaimed seasons: Five Stars Telegraph, Four Stars Time Out, Four Stars Evening Standard.
