- The performance runs at two hours, (including a twenty minute interval).
- For your own comfort it’s a good idea to bring warm clothing and waterproofs. Umbrellas might block the view for others so ponchos/raincoats are a better option.

Do you believe in love at first sight? Shakespeare’s star-crossed lovers dream of happy-ever-after in the face of bitter divisions and bloody consequences. This desperate pair are ready to risk everything for true love... “These violent delights have violent ends.” Who can forget their first love? The way your heart felt like it might explode at any moment. Or that knot in your stomach, when you yearned to see them again.

Packed with live music, uproarious comedy and heartbreak, this vital and energised outdoor production from The Duke’s Theatre Company promises to pack a punch, whilst delivering the classical text with modern clarity and relevance. This is a story as current and relatable today as it was when it was first performed over 400 years ago. Be prepared to fall in love all over again.
