From historic feud to ill-fated union, Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet speaks of chance, destiny and fortune, and after some of the most fractious years in recent history, this universal tale finds new significance in 2021.
Romeo and Juliet fall in love. Romeo and Juliet die. It’s not a spoiler. It’s written in the stars. Final. Finite. But what if it isn’t?
Director Ola Ince (Appropriate, Donmar Warehouse) makes her Globe debut directing Shakespeare’s timeless tragedy with Alfred Enoch (Red, West End) and Rebekah Murrell (Scenes with girls, Royal Court0 as the ‘star-crossed lovers’.
My only love sprung from my only hate,
Too early seen unknown, and known too late!
Prodigious birth of love is it to me
That I must love a loathed enemy.
- Act I, scene 5
