Romeo and Juliet

Starts: Friday 5th August 2016
Ends: Sunday 21st August 2016
From: 7:00 pm

Romeo & Juliet will be a beautiful, heart rending and accessible version of the great classic romance. A total of 16 performances will be staged outdoors at Royal William Yard from 5 – 21 August.

Barbican Theatre’s Artistic Director, Mark Laville, who will be directing Romeo & Juliet says;

“We chose Romeo & Juliet because it is a timeless tale of love, rebellion and tragedy. After the success of A Midsummer Night’s Dream last year we know Romeo & Juliet can be an exceptional experience when produced specifically for the outdoors at Royal William Yard. I’m really looking forward to working with our outstanding local actors from the Plymouth area again, to create a performance the whole family will adore.”

Barbican Theatre’s Trip Advisor page received many positive reviews following 2015’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, including,

A wonderful production, highly entertaining and amusing. We saw the performance in the Secret Garden at the Royal William Yard and the evening was magical. I would highly recommend this company”

What a perfect setting to stage A Midsummer Night’s Dream – Residence One at the Royal William Yard. The cast were superb … Give us more like this please – I loved it.”

“The cast made it the wonderful comic play it is intended to be. In fact, I cannot imagine ever seeing a more enjoyable, intimate and engaging performance as this one.“
