About This Show

The story of frustrated young (illegally young in modern terms) love and death and the vendetta between two families in a tight-knit Italian community. One of Shakespeare’s most popular and enduring dramas it has also been re-done as film, ballet, musical (most notably “West Side Story”) and ice spectacular!

This gay, all male production is a bold reimagining of William Shakespeare’s classic love story. The physical theatre piece will use two opposing rugby teams to ground the piece in the 21st century. When the two men meet, the integrity of both teams is compromised and the unyielding pride of men threatens to destroy all that they know.
