by William Shakespeare

Presented by Immersion Theatre
Directed by James Tobias

Immersion Theatre presented an unforgettable adaptation of William Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet.

Inspired by the brutality of the Kent miners strike, this tragic story of forbidden love and bitter rivalry is boldly relocated to 1980’s England and was to be a gritty, visceral and highly accessible spectacle infused with heart-break, danger and comedy perfect for both, the seasoned theatre-goer and budding literary enthusiast.
