RSC First Encounters with Shakespeare: Romeo & Juliet

Creative Quarter Over the Water

A gatecrashed party. A chance meeting. Love at first sight.

The latest in the Royal Shakespeare Company’s series of First Encounters productions makes Shakespeare’s star cross’d lovers relevant for a new generation of theatregoers.

This 90-minute version of Romeo and Juliet uses an edited version of the original language to create the perfect first introduction for young people aged 8-13 and their families.
