Then I defy you, stars! 

Dominic Dromgoole’s production brings refreshing clarity to one of Shakespeare’s most famous and best-loved tragedies, drawing out the contemporary relevance of this passionate teenage love story.

Ellie Kendrick (Game of Thrones, Upstairs Downstairs, The Diary of Anne Frank), a truly youthful Juliet, and Adetomiwa Edun (Merlin, The Hour), a boyish Romeo, head an excellent cast whose period costumes point to the timelessness of parental disapproval, adolescent temperament, rivalry and violence.

Adetomiwa Edun's Romeo is fresh, cheeky, light on his feet... the production's secret weapon is Ellie Kendrick as Juliet ... Kendrick delivers the jewelled verse with a lovely purity and directness. 

Daily Telegraph

Powerfully conveys the play's spirit of reckless vitality ... The performances shine. 

Mail on Sunday

Dromgoole's pacy production ... The audience were rapt but responsive. 

Observer

Absorbing ... Conveys a winning sense of young hearts adrift. 

The Times

 

Romeo and Juliet was staged and filmed live at Shakespeare's Globe in 2009 and is part of the Shakespeare's Globe Collection.
