About the event
Contender Charlie and China Plate present
Romeo and Juliet – Mad Blood Stirring
By William Shakespeare
Adapted by Nick Walker
Made for 9 – 13 year olds, by the team behind Macbeth – Blood Will Have Blood.
“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.”
A troubled Friar rushes us through the mutinous streets of Verona, plunging us into a community torn apart by prejudice, conflict and violent crime.
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.
Narrated in modern English by the Friar, this is an unforgettable introduction to Shakespeare and his devastating love story.
