Romeo & Juliet
Following a critically acclaimed season at the Edinburgh Fringe 2019, Curious Pheasant Theatre presents 'Romeo & Juliet'.
This gay, all-male production is a bold re-imagining of William Shakespeare’s classic love story. The physical theatre piece uses two opposing rugby teams to ground itself in the 21st century. When the two men meet, the integrity of both teams is compromised and the unyielding pride of men threatens to destroy all that they know.
‘For never was a story of more woe than this of Juliet and his Romeo’
