Romeo and Juliet
These violent delights have violent ends.
A 21st century re-imagining of Shakespeare’s iconic love story, La Boite’s production of Romeo and Juliet takes no prisoners in its version of theatre’s infamous star-crossed lovers.
Two families at war, two teenagers in love, a three-day affair that ends in six deaths. Did Romeo and Juliet love too much, too hard, too soon? Did their union even stand a chance? And why do we still care?
Under the gripping direction of Todd MacDonald, the ongoing partnership between La Boite and QUT promises to pack a punch. Brisbane’s best emerging actors perform alongside an ensemble of incomparable senior artists in La Boite’s take on this enduring Shakespearean love story.
