WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
This co-production pairs the well-loved tragedy with aerial circus alongside a series of workshops to explore power and explain our parliamentary systems to schoolchildren. Set against a backdrop of conflict, civil disturbance and prejudice in present British society, this timeless production tells a story of young people betrayed by a fractured society leading to tragic consequences. In keeping with the play's central theme of overcoming societal barriers, this inclusive version uses unconventional staging to encourage audiences to move and explore the set, allowing them to experience the drama up close and be absorbed in the story. Supported by Arts Council of Wales and Arts Active, in association with Theatr Iolo and No Fit State Circus | An Omidaze co-production with Wales Millennium Centre.
