A MODERN ROMANCE – KIDS KILLING KIDS

THESE VIOLENT DELIGHTS HAVE VIOLENT ENDS.


A 21st century re-imagining of Shakespeare’s iconic love story, La Boite’s production of Romeo and Juliet takes no prisoners in its version of theatre’s infamous star-crossed lovers.

Two families at war, two teenagers in love, a three-day affair that ends in six deaths. Did Romeo and Juliet love too much, too hard, too soon? Did their union even stand a chance? And why do we still care?
