With Lost Dog’s blend of dance, theatre and comedy this duet reveals the real story of Romeo and Juliet. It turns out they didn’t die in a tragic misunderstanding, they grew up and lived happily ever after.
Well they lived at least.
Now they are 40ish, at least one of them is having a mid-life crisis, they feel constantly mocked by their teenage selves and haunted by the pressures of being the poster couple for romantic love. Thev’ve decided to confront their current struggles with a performance – about themselves. Their therapist thinks it’s a terrible idea.
Directed by Olivier Award nominated Ben Duke, Juliet & Romeo takes on our cultural obsession with youth and our inevitable issues with longevity.
