A love to die for. Shakespeare’s tale of young lovers swept into a catastrophic vortex of misunderstandings, secrets and fate is one of the most beloved stories of all time. In this fresh adaptation for five actors, Romeo and Juliet, the son and daughter of two noble families locked in an old feud, are irresistibly drawn to each other. Defying the hatred and distrust surrounding them, they dare to believe they can, and must, be together.
"Penfold Theatre Company has made its mark producing small-cast plays with great performers and solid direction. Romeo and Juliet is no different... impressive and engaging... the kind of show that will entertain children and audiences after more complex fare."
"Penfold’s production delivers fresh performances, ideas, and staging that do not leave people wanting. The sword fighting, comedy, drama and suspense keeps the audience’s rapt attention. Simply, there is something for everyone in this production."
