ROMEO AND JULIET.
by William Shakespeare
Sunday 15 to Saturday 21 July 2012
Fountain Gardens, York House
This tale of passionate love across the divide of feuding families with its inter-generational conflicts and painful twists of fate provides an array of excellent parts. We are swept into the action in the first half with brawls, humour and colourful characters such as the fiery Tybalt, the witty cynic, Mercutio and the garrulous Nurse and so on to the rich poetry of the famouis balcony scene. While in the second half the "fix-it" Friar and thwarted Capulet help to hurtle events towards the fated tragic ending.
