Go to What's On


By William Shakespeare

Wed 10 May 2017 - Sat 22 Jul 2017

After great success at The Watermill last year, Paul Hart’s powerful, explosive production of Shakespeare’s immortal tale of an all-consuming love, will return to the theatre before touring nationally and internationally alongside Twelfth Night.

Risking everything, a young couple defy their feuding families and find love on the streets of Verona.

An unforgettable production, Romeo + Juliet features music by Mumford and Sons, Johnny Flynn, The Vaccines, The Civil Wars and Hozier, performed live by the cast.

The UK and international tour of Twelfth Night and Romeo + Juliet will culminate in a two week run at The Watermill from Tuesday 18 July.
