Medieval Verona will be brought to Albury Botanic Gardens when one of Shakespeare’s most popular plays, Romeo and Juliet, will be presented by The Other Theatre Company.

Two star-crossed lovers come together in spite of the constant opposition of their warring families. Street brawls, a masquerade, hope, and the best laid schemes of the well intentioned will lead to an inevitable and tragic conclusion.

Director Christine Duff says “This is one of Shakespeare’s first works, written when he was starting to make a name for himself as a play-write. It has always been one of his most popular plays, enjoying success from its very first staging in Shakespeare’s time. Technically it is one of his tragedies, but one with some lighter moments of comedy, at least in the beginning, and a fair amount of swashbuckling swordplay to keep the audience entertained. One of the strong dramatic themes includes the impetuousness of young love.”

Romeo and Juliet is The Other Theatre Company’s fifth adaptation of a Shakespeare classic.
