ROMEO & JULIET BY WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE
Capitol Theatre Tamworth
Level 1 Centrepoint Shopping Centre Peel Street
Tamworth, NSW, Australia
A timeless Shakespeare tale of young love struggling to survive amid a brutal and long standing feud between two families.
Old hatreds are reignited in the stifling heat of a long hot summer – the air fills with rage and torment as a new generation takes up their parents’ hostilities. But out of the violence grows a seed of hope, Romeo & Juliet, born of a single stolen moment between two star crossed lovers from either side of the conflict – their forbidden love as strong as their parents’ hate. Fate dictates their future and violence leads to fatal consequences.
"My only loe sprung from my only hate." - Juliet (I, V, 147)
