RSC First Encounters with Shakespeare Romeo & Juliet

Fri 15 March 2024

Presented by the Royal Shakespeare Company.

A gatecrashed party. A chance meeting. Love at first sight.

When Romeo meets Juliet, the world around them melts away. But then reality kicks in; their families are enemies, and they will never be allowed to stay together. With the world against them, they hatch a plan to escape the lives they were born into. But fate has other ideas.

Following the success of last year’s sell out Twelfth Night, the latest in our series of First Encounters productions makes Shakespeare’s star cross’d lovers relevant for a new generation of theatregoers.

This 90-minute version of Romeo and Juliet uses an edited version of the original language to create the perfect first introduction for young people aged 7-13 and their families.

The tour of First Encounters: Romeo and Juliet is supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
