Romeo and Juliet
by William Shakespeare
“In truth, fair Montague, I am too fond.”
Near future ‘Verona’. Violence reigns, and only through violence can order be regained. Politics is polarised beyond all compromise. Gay marriage is legal — for now. But as the country sleepwalks into right-wing dystopia, there’s no guarantee it will stay that way. One night, Romeo and Juliet, women from two warring households, fall in love and in lust. They arrange to get married immediately.
Following the success of Twelfth Night, The Comedy of Errors and Much Ado About Nothing, The Oxford University Dramatic Society presents its international tour of Romeo and Juliet.
