Directions Theatre Pty Ltd presents

ROMEO & JULIET

Written by William Shakespeare
Directed by CJ Bowers

Directions Theatre Pty Ltd is pleased to announce their 20th production in the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens in February 2018 will be Shakespeare's “Romeo & Juliet”

Fall in love with Shakespeare's timeless story of young passions and feuding families as the star-crossed lovers of Romeo and Juliet are brought to the Gardens magnificent setting. As the old feud between the Capulet’s and the Montague’s heats up, two teenagers from opposite sides fall in love at first sight. Married in secret, they hope for reconciliation between their families. When short tempers lead to deadly consequences, the young lovers find themselves alone, facing impossible odds and making desperate decisions.  What starts as a comedy transforms into a heart-stirring romance for the ages, featuring Shakespeare's extraordinary poetry.

Directed by CJ Bowers, this modern take on the world’s greatest love story will delight and move audiences.

Bowers says, “The language and story of this play are a joy to work with, this is all about a young couple that risk all they have to be together!”

Be enchanted by the Botanical Gardens at night, pack a picnic and come along to be swept up in “Romeo & Juliet”.
