A reimagining of Shakespeare's tragedy about the infamous star-crossed lovers.
It's Britain in 1981 - Thatcher is in power, Skinheads are running amuck, and two young people find love among the adversity they are living through. Will they be strong enough to survive the age old-conflicts in their community?
This production is part of the Shakespeare for Schools project.
Running to just 100 minutes – it’s designed for schools, but open to all comers - Nicky Allpress’s multi-racial production could be hideously gimmicky, but it has a refreshing cheek and an energetic, cheery coherence.
