Rupert Goold's savagely hectic production of Romeo and Juliet has been praised as an impetuous anthem for doomed youth. It is set in a torch-lit, Catholic world, where impulses reign and people act before they think. Performances begin on July 10. Sam Troughton and Mariah Gale play the fated lovers. Also in the cast are Forbes Masson as Friar Lawrence; Joseph Arkley as Tybalt; James Howard as Paris; Jonjo O'Neill as Mercutio; Noma Dumezweni as the Nurse; Richard Katz as Lord Capulet; Oliver Ryan as Benvolio; Christine Entwisle as Lady Capulet; and David Carr as Escalus.
