About this show

Shakespeare's R&J spins the classic story of history's most famous "star-cross'd lovers" in a modern tale of teenage awakening. Mauckingbird Theatre Company's intimate production explores youthful desires, vulnerability and burgeoning sexuality as four schoolboys at a repressive preparatory school discover William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet and find themselves suddenly immersed in the tragic story of forbidden love. As the boys assume the roles of all the play's characters, the classic tale begins to blur with the students' own lives and Shakespeare's verse is heard anew.
