ROMEO AND JULIET/ ICARUS THEATRE

Theatre |
27th March 2013

“Violent delights have violent ends…”

 

Following on from the success of Macbeth, the highly acclaimed Icarus Theatre Collective presents a bold and exciting new production of Shakespeare’s most tragic tale – Romeo & Juliet.

In defiance of their families and in secrecy from their closest friends, hopeful young lives burn amidst a celestial and cataclysmic backdrop. 

Sun and moon shine down on star-crossed lovers as they hide their passion and sexuality from their warring families and their closest friends.  

Misadventure, family pride, and ancient quarrels abort and bury the most joyous of beginnings, the most hopeful of love stories as Romeo and Juliet, driven apart, find their world becoming a constricting, single mausoleum of fate and death.

 

Icarus Theatre productions have won numerous accolades including Time Out’s Critics Choice, as well as receiving great praise from critics and audiences alike and winning awards from as far afield as Romania (Best Production and Best Actress, The Lesson).

Over the years, the company have performed their work both nationally and internationally, including their award-winning production of R.C. Sheriff’s Journey’s End, which played to sell-out houses on its national tour.
