Romeo and Juliet
By William Shakespeare
Hall Barn Estate, Beaconsfield
Tues 5th - Sun 10th July 2022.
Shakespeare’s classic tragedy about a longstanding feud between two noble families of Verona.
This will be a joint production with The Chiltern Shakespeare Company in the delightful grounds of the Hall Barn Estate.
We are delighted to be working with them on this post-pandemic relaunch of their annual event!
Set in a city torn apart by feuds and gang warfare, Shakespeare's immortal drama tells the story of star-crossed lovers, rival dynasties, and bloody revenge. Romeo and Juliet is a hymn to youth and the thrill of forbidden love, charged with sexual passion and violence, but also a warning of death: a dazzling combination of bawdy comedy and high tragedy.

London 1660. King Charles II has exploded onto the scene with a love of all things loud, extravagant, and sexy. And at Drury Lane, a young Nell Hwynn is causing stirrings amongst theatre-goers.
We follow her rise, from her roots in Coal Yard Alley to her success as Britain's most celebrated actress, and hard-won place in the heart of the King.
This exhilarating take on the heady world of Restoration theatre premiered at The Globe in 2015, and transferred to the west End in 2016. It won the 2016 Olivier award for Best New Comedy.
'Superbly funny .... a juicy, well-wrought thing of great fun, a wonderfully layered celebration of theatre, but most of all an apt homage to a woman incredibly ahead of her time' - Time Out.
'A rollicking good evening's entertainment... an unending delight' - Evening Standard.
This is an amateur production by arrangement with Nick Hearn Books.
