Presented by Southsea Shakespeare Actors,

In a world of two feuding factions, the Montagues and the Capulets, Young Romeo, a Montague, is heartbroken and in love with Rosaline. When his friends encourage him to gatecrash a party where Rosaline might be, he bumps into a young Capulet man called Julius, and his life is changed forever. This love-at-first-sight chance encounter sets the two boys on a chaotic path of disaster, as the star-crossed lovers navigate their immense love in a world which isn’t ready or prepared to honour it.

The Southsea Shakespeare Actors make their triumphant return to Groundlings Theatre with Romeo & Julius, a bold reimagining of Shakespeare’s original Romeo & Juliet. This adaptation utilises Shakespeare’s original text, but sets the play in a contemporary, gritty, modern world and casts the two lovers as male, resulting in a layered, diverse and interesting interpretation of William Shakespeare’s masterpiece which is fresh, exciting and dynamic.

Directed and adapted by Aaron Holdaway.
