Romeo & Juliet – Open air theatre at Corfe Castle

Five actors, with all manner of musical instruments, present an inventive take on Shakespeare’s most famous story, Romeo & Juliet. Prepare for a carnival of passion and imagination, as The Fools present the world’s best-known love story, come rain come shine, in the great British outdoors! This romantic epic will be getting the full Three Inch Fools treatment: live music-making, deft physicality and vibrant story-telling. Expect fast-paced drama, plenty of musical instruments and many a quick costume change along the way!

The Play
In the summer heat of Verona, passion and violence are in the air – and the age-old feud between the Montagues and the Capulets is close to boiling point. But when young Romeo and Juliet meet at a ball, they instantly fall in love. Anticipating the rage of their warring families, the pair defy their elders and marry in secret. But when Juliet’s cousin Tybalt challenges Romeo to a duel, it sets off a chain of events that can only end in tragedy.

This performance is an outdoor performance. We recommend that you bring blankets/chairs/cushions etc. to sit on. Come prepared for the weather with warm coats and waterproofs etc, as the performance will continue come rain come shine! We ask that you don’t bring umbrellas as these can obscure the view for other people in the audience. 7pm start time, picnics welcome from 6.30pm. The performance will last approximately 120 minutes (+ a 20 minute interval).

We recommend booking tickets for this performance online in advance. For further information about this performance please call 07764 981885.
