Description Three moving love stories inspired by the classic tale of Romeo and Juliet. Set across three different eras, this new production reinforces the notion that love - no matter what age you are, or what age you are in - is eternal and its power everlasting. R&J turns the classic story of Romeo and Juliet on its head, cutting to the essence of what is real, human and inevitable. Love plays a major role in all our lives, but as Shakespeare knew too well, does not always guarantee a fairytale ending.
