Taking Flight Theatre: Romeo and Juliet

It’s Verona 1963 and it's the annual college Boat Race, the high society courtship event for the rich, beautiful and perfectly coiffed.  Times are turbulent, so you’ll need to really support your house, whether it be Montague or Capulet, as they battle it out on the river.  A new take on a very old tale - you can expect to see Taking Flight's signature traits - exciting visual theatre with live original music and plenty of comedy. 

All performances feature BSL by Sami Thorpe and live audio description. This is promenade performance - it moves around and you move with it. The boat race will take place come rain or shine - just bring your brolly and wrap up warm.  

Romeo & Juliet will tour all over Wales, in beautiful outdoor spaces. 2016 marks 400 years of Shakespeare and we’d love for you to join us for one of his most famous plays.
