Handlebards theatre – "Romeo and Juliet"

Friday 22nd June 2018 at 19:00

Please note: this performance takes place in the Chapter House. An additional performance takes place on 22nd June at 13.30.

In Verona, the Montagues and Capulets are in the throes of a long-running family feud. In the midst of this two young members of the families – Romeo Montague and Juliet Capulet – fall in love at the Capulet Ball. Even though they know their love is forbidden by their family allegiances, they marry in secret in the cell of Friar Lawrence.

In the midst of a duel, Romeo kills Juliet’s cousin, Tybalt, resulting in his banishment from Verona. Juliet feigns her own death in an attempt to reunite herself with the banished Romeo, but not everything goes quite according to plan.

In usual HandleBards style, you can expect riotous amounts of energy, a fair old whack of chaos, and a great deal of laughter.
