Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare

Following a sold out run at the Edinburgh Fringe 2018, Curious Pheasant Theatre present Romeo and Juliet. This LGBTQ+, all male production is a bold reimagining of William Shakespeare’s classic love story.
The physical theatre piece will use two opposing rugby teams to ground the piece in the 21st century. When the two men meet, the integrity of both teams is compromised and the unyielding pride of men threatens to destroy all that they know.

This production is kindly supported by Mayflower Theatre, Nuffield Southampton Theatres and Arts Council England.
