Shakespeare’s Globe presents Romeo & Juliet

Award-winning Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre will visit Exeter Northcott Theatre in April with its brand new version of the classic tragedy, Romeo & Juliet.

A violent street brawl between their rival families is the prelude to Romeo’s first encounter with Juliet. Despite this, and the fact Juliet has been promised to another, they fall in love. But any plans for their future happiness are cruelly destroyed by renewed violence between their families and tragedy begins to unfold.

A small troupe of travelling players takes to the road with Shakespeare’s tale of star-crossed lovers.  Performed on an Elizabethan-style stage, this stripped-down version breathes new life into one of the greatest of all love stories.

“Summer is all the sweeter for a Shakespeare road trip.”
