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!
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.
