Ne’er was there a story of less woe…

As far as tragedies go, the story of Juliet & Her Romeo at Bristol Old Vic couldn’t be more joyous. Tom Morris and Sean O’Connor’s adaptation of the most famous love story ever told has really put our theatre back on the map. With a simple twist on the idea, Romeo and Juliet are re-cast as eighty-somethings living in an old peoples’ home. Although Shakespeare plays can often be re-invented merely for re-invention’s sake, Juliet & Her Romeo manages to weave its ruse into every fibre of the original text and even unearths new poignancy. The reaction from the local and national press has been fantastic, and we have been overwhelmed by the support from those of you who have come to see the show.Juliet & Her Romeo, much like the inhabitants of the Verona PLC care home, is in the twilight of its innings. The final performance is on the evening of Saturday 24th April 2010 and tickets are selling fast. If you haven’t yet had a chance to see the show, time is of the essence. As well as some availability in the main seating areas, we also have £5 unreserved tickets for the gallery which provide incredible value for money.Book now to avoid disappointment: 0117 9877 877
