Founded in 2019, The Duke’s Theatre Company’s inaugural tour of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet visits 22 Open Air Theatres in the Summer of 2021.
Our ethos is to bring high end, accessible outdoor productions of some of our greatest Classical works to rural communities with energy and accuracy. Breathing new life into the verse, we aim to communicate how these timeless masterpieces are still relevant today, by engaging audiences both young and old.

Live, original music is at the core of our productions, which are entirely faithful to the original text. A company of highly skilled actor musicians breathe vitality into our favourite Classical works - a Duke’s Theatre Company production will excite and engage everyone.

DID MY HEART LOVE TILL NOW?
FORESWEAR IT, SIGHT! FOR I NE'ER
SAW TRUE BEAUTY TILL THIS NIGHT.

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?
Romeo & Juliet captures the passion, energy and heartbreak of young love like no play since. Have any lovers sparked such joy and such sorrow? 

 

Packed with live music, uproarious comedy and heartbreak, this vital and energised theatre 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!
