Romeo & Juliet by The Lord Chamberlain’s Men: Outdoor Theatre at Broadway Tower
Tue June 13 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm BST| £20.00
Join us for an outdoor production of the timeless & classic love story, Romeo & Juliet, in the stunning iconic location of Broadway Tower
With a history stretching back to William Shakespeare himself they present this great play as he first saw it, in the open air, with an all male cast and Elizabethan costumes, music and dance.
“A pair of star-crossed lovers take their life”
Two youths from Verona – Romeo and Juliet – meet by chance and instantly fall in love. Members of two warring families, the Montagues and Capulets, they realise they cannot be together. But driven by love they risk everything and marry in secret. No sooner are they married than misfortune intervenes and, despite efforts to outrun it, their families’ ancient feud catches up with them and brings about their tragic end.
“Tis but thy name that is my enemy.”
Packed with memorable poetry, devastating twists and turns, and burning passion this is without doubt the greatest love story ever told; a play about the power of true love, the extraordinary sacrifices we make for it and the futility and devastating consequences of entrenched conflict.
“These violent delights have violent ends”
The Lord Chamberlain’s Men is the UK’s premier all male theatre company.
Sitting under the same stars that Shakespeare sat under and hearing his poetry brought to life the company offer an unparalleled authentic, excellent and magical experience; one that is truly unique. They are renowned for productions of great vivacity, clarity, quality and accessibility. Their productions champion authenticity whilst breathing fresh, new life into these extraordinary plays. Seeing a production by The Lord Chamberlain’s Men will ignite, rekindle or maintain a burning passion in the greatest playwright the world has ever seen.
They normally perform at National Trust properties, stately homes and castles around the UK. We are excited to host such high quality theatre in Broadway.
