Bard in the Botanics presents

Directed by Gordon Barr

“Violent delights have violent ends”

An ancient feud between the Capulets and Montagues rips apart the city of Verona. A young generation, caught up in its violence and hatred, perpetuates a situation over which they have no control. When Romeo and Juliet, children of the two mortal enemies, meet and fall passionately in love, they set in motion a chain of events that will destroy not only themselves but many of their friends.

Acclaimed by audiences and critics alike, this 5-star production retells Shakespeare’s enduring story through the eyes of a younger generation betrayed by their elders and struggling to make sense of their emotions in a world they haven’t created.

“has a violently youthful relevance for a new generation of 16 year-olds” ★★★★★ The Herald

“full of wit and understanding….in Glasgow, of all cities, this is a tale that never seems out of date” ★★★★ The Scotsman

“An excellent take on the Bard’s tale…filled with all the flaming passions of youth” STV

Amazing performance. I am so glad that I came to see it. A great modern take on Shakespeares famous play, all done with only 5 actors! 4 of us from my drama class have been researching different versions of romeo and Juliet because we are also performing this play and this is far the best version I have seen! It's given us some great ideas. I highly recommend it :)
