Bell Shakespeare commence their 2016 season with the reimagined tale of star-cross'd lovers, directed by artistic director Peter Evans

Fierce passion, feuding families, unshakable love and a tragic misunderstanding: even after all this time, Romeo and Juliet still has the power to move.

"One of Shakespeare's greatest virtues is that he allows us to wear our emotion on our sleeve. He provides us with the timeless poetry that pierces through the silence of modern manners." This is Peter Evans, artistic director of the Sydney-based Bell Shakespeare company, explaining his motivation to stage the most well-known romantic tragedy in history. 

This production finds Alex Williams (Underground: The Julian Assange Story, INX: Never Tear Us Apart) and Bell Shakespeare favourite Kelly Paterniti (As You Like It) playing the leads as young and naive teenagers. Whether this is the first time you've seen Romeo and Juliet on stage or you're a R&J tragic, don't miss out on the chance to see one of the country's premiere theatre companies bringing the story to life.
