Siege Theatre presents ‘Romeo & Juliet’ as part of The Shakespeare Festival 2018.
“The day the power of love overrules the love of power, the world will know peace”
Date: 30th July – 11th August
Time: 7.30pm start
This is Siege’s fourth year in partnership with Oxford Castle Unlocked, and having taken on the challenge of some of Shakespeares most dramatic pieces, this beautiful and enthralling setting will now be the backdrop for our version of Romeo & Juliet. At once a tale of young loves impetuous reaction to parental control, crack the surface and you’ll find a deep, dark and menacing world to challenge any of the bard’s great tragedies.
Using power and love as the central pillars of this dynamic production, the team will be creating a show that explores the depths of control, the weight of tradition and the consequences of disobedience.
We’ll see how both power and love can corrupt, how both can make you blind and ultimately how both can take that which is most precious to you.
So come with an open heart and an open mind to see how our ‘star-crossed lovers’ deal with this most tragic of tales.
