The Show
Shakespeare's famous tale of love and loss comes to the Barbican theatre from November as part of the Royal Shakespeare Company season. The backdrop of the play is Verona, Italy and during a time of a long standing feud between the Montagues and the Capulets, two Italian noble families. At the centre are Romeo Montague and Juliet Capulet. Romeo, having been persuaded by his friends to disguise himself and attend a party being thrown by the Capulets, meets Juliet, the two fall completely in love even before knowing each other's names. What unfolds then is a series of tragic and heart-breaking events as a consequence of the young lovers, the feud that neither of them believe in and a love they will risk everything for. Don't miss the opportunity to see Shakespeare's timeless tale this year.

History of Romeo and Juliet
Romeo and Juliet was written between 1595 and 1596 by famous playwright William Shakespeare and is believed to have been a success within its own time. Since its original the play has seen many adaptions, including one in 1744 which not only included parts of Shakespeare's "The Two Gentleman of Verona" but also cast a father and daughter as the love stuck couple, which didn't seem to go down overly well with audiences at the time. The play itself is still taught in many schools across the UK and is still holds a high appeal and retains the original Shakespearian language throughout its different adaptation. One of the most popular movie adaptions, Baz Luhrmann's Romeo and Juliet", brings the lovers into the modern day whilst maintaining the feel of the classic play.
