Alfred Enoch and Rebekah Murrell star in Shakespeare’s classic tragedy
From historic feud to ill-fated union, Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet speaks of chance, destiny and fortune, and after some of the most fractious years in recent history, this universal tale finds new significance in 2021.
Director Ola Ince (Appropriate, Donmar Warehouse) makes her Globe debut directing Shakespeare’s timeless tragedy with Alfred Enoch (Red, West End, How To Get Away With Murder) and Rebekah Murrell (Scenes with girls, Royal Court) as the ‘star-crossed lovers’.
Romeo & Juliet is booking until 17 October 2021 at Shakespeare’s Globe, London.
What is Romeo & Juliet about?
Romeo and Juliet fall in love. Romeo and Juliet die. It’s not a spoiler. It’s written in the stars. Final. Finite. But what if it isn’t?
As the Verona lights twinkle outdoors, experience Shakespeare’s story of forbidden love and the devastating tragedy that unfolds when tenderness and naivety is met with violence and pride.
