Romeo and Juilet

Romeo and Juilet 

By William Shakespeare, adapted by Ross Brown

An age-old vendetta between two powerful families erupts into bloodshed. A group of masked Montagues risk further conflict by gatecrashing a Capulet party. A young lovesick Romeo Montague falls instantly in love with Juliet Capulet, who is due to marry her father’s choice, the County Paris. With the help of Juliet’s nurse, the women arrange for the couple to marry the next day, but Romeo’s attempt to halt a street fight leads to the death of Juliet’s own cousin, Tybalt, for which Romeo is banished. In a desperate attempt to be reunited with Romeo, Juliet follows the Friar’s plot and fakes her own death.

With music, songs, dances and fight sequences, this adapation by the SPYS will entertain everyone, even the non-Shakespeare fans!

When it was first published, Romeo and Juliet went by a much more descriptive—and much longer—title : The Most Excellent and Lamentable Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet.

There have been many, many adaptations of Romeo and Juliet on stage and screen including Baz Lurman's 1996 film which was bought into modern day, Matthew Bourne's ballet version set in an insitution and the 2011 family film "Gnomeo and Juliet" set in a garden.
