O’Reilly Theatre: Romeo and Juliet

Tuesday 05 June 2018 at 7:30 PM

7th Week
5-9 June

This is Romeo and Juliet, Shakespeare's iconic story of love and loss, as it has never been seen before. Set in HM Prison Verona, an institution for female offenders heavily impacted by austerity measures, the Montague and Capulet gangs have almost entirely taken over. Romeo is one of the highest-status Montagues, famous for her right left hook, but she is also a hopeless romantic. She first meets Juliet at one of the Capulet's infamous takeovers of the canteen. The Capulet's plan to 'wed' her to Paris, a powerful and corrupt guard. Instead, Romeo and Juliet fall in love and the fallout from their marriage by a prison guard ends in tragedy for all. ​Squidink Theatre's exciting new staging of Romeo and Juliet promises to be shocking, moving and entertaining
