Exhilarating, sharp and hilarious, Merely Theatre Company present young love in all its raw and savage beauty, offering an authentic Shakespearean experience for the 21st century.
Sweaty, stripped-back Shakespeare. The actors, the audience, the text.
The show drives through action-packed thrills and tender intimacy to crushing loss. Lovers from feuding families wed in secret, but their plans are torn apart by bitter violence. A desperate attempt to reunite them goes awry, and their union falls apart with tragic consequences.
Five actors take on multiple roles to deliver the tale with the company’s signature style of urgency, humour and clarity. Book now for a stirring, visceral theatrical experience.
