• Romeo & Juliet 2021

    We are thrilled to be presenting Shakespeare’s tragic love story Romeo & Juliet for our 19th season of Shakespeare in the Vines.

    A violent street brawl between rival families the Montague’s and Capulet’s is the prelude to Romeo’s first encounter with Juliet. Despite every obstacle they fall in love. But any plans for their future happiness are cruelly destroyed by renewed violence between the two families.  Packed with lyricism, comedy, suspense and drama, Shakespeare’s heartbreaking tale is one of the greatest of all love stories.

    “But, soft! what light through yonder window breaks? It is the east, and Juliet is the sun”

    Directed & Designed by Alister Smith
