'We were born to die'
Verona. A powerful and romantic city until riots gutted the land of state-control. Now, two powerful families grapple for supremacy as their savage youngsters brawl for territory.
“Reading’s premier professional theatre company” (Reading Post) present a bold, modern production in the magnificent Reading Minster, with music by DJ & electronic composer, Benjamin Hudson (Baconhead; Global tours, Radio 1, 6 Music, MTV…).
Inspired by raves, riots and revolt, RBL return with Romeo & Juliet. A dystopian warning and a love letter to peace.
'Everything about RBL's Romeo and Juliet felt vibrant and alive, director Hal Chambers bringing a new, edgier tone to a familiar classic'
'A stellar, powerful production' READING CHRONICLE
'It is impeccably directed by Hal Chambers and acted with passion and commitment from this talented cast. The company has full ownership of Shakespeare’s verse that is strikingly delivered and totally accessible.'
