First Look: Romeo and Julie rehearsals starring Callum Scott Howells & Rosie Sheehy

Rehearsal photos are in for Romeo and Julie, coming to the National Theatre in February.

Part of Sherman Theatre’s 50th anniversary season, this new play by Sherman Associate Artist Gary Owen is directed by Rachel O’Riordan.

The play runs at the National Theatre in London from 14 February to 1 April 2023, and then the Sherman Theatre from 13 to 29 April 2023.

The cast includes Callum Scott Howells (It’s A Sin) as Romeo, who is currently playing The Emcee in Cabaret in the West End – until 11 February. He is joined by Rosie Sheehy (Bird – Sherman Theatre, All’s Well That Ends Well  – RSC) as Julie.

Other cast include Catrin Aaron (The Lovely Bones – Birmingham Rep, Missing Julie – Theatr Clwyd), Paul Brennen (A Discovery of Witches – Sky, Happy Valley – BBC) and  Anita Reynolds (The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe – Sherman Theatre, A Monster Calls – The Old Vic / Bristol Old Vic). 

Owen and O’Riordan scored a huge success last year with their production of Iphigenia in Splott at the Lyric Hammersmith, which was first performed at Sherman Theatre in 2015.

Romeo and Julie is billed as a modern love story inspired by Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet set against the inequality of opportunity faced by many of today’s young people, and is set in Cardiff’s Tremorfa and Splott communities.
