OVO Theatre

Romeo & Juliet

Mon 7 Oct - Wed 9 Oct
Two households, both alike in dignity. In broken Belfast, where we lay our scene…

A brand-new adaption set on the streets of Northern Ireland’s capital in 1998 – the year that the Good Friday agreement was signed.

“From ancient grudge break to new mutiny, a pair of star-crossed lovers take their lives.”

Led with movement and a banging 90s soundtrack played by a live band, this is a high paced, modern take on a timeless classic.

OVO’s fresh take shows us that Shakespeare is as relevant today as it’s always been and that a fragile peace is only as durable as opposing sides permit.
