Romeo and Juliet

A new adaptation of Shakespeare's tragedy for 9 to 13 years for school and family audiences.

Romeo and Juliet - Mad Blood Stirring

By William Shakespeare. Written by Nick Walker.


“I genuinely thought I could end the trouble once and for all. But I got in too deep. And it all ended badly.

I am the Friar. God forgive me.”


Gripping story-telling, live music and striking visual effects take young audiences on a heart-wrenching journey as they follow Shakespeare’s star crossed lovers towards their tragic end.

Guided through Shakespeare’s original text by the Friar, speaking modern English, this is an unforgettable introduction to his devastating love story.
