Romeo & Juliet in a Tempest!


Year 10 survived a tempest to see Romeo and Juliet at Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, Bankside, London on Tuesday 12th March. The performance was fast paced, without an interval, and actors wowed us visually in modern costumes with brightly coloured leathers, silver lurex and satins. The contemporary setting meant weapons were knives with a sombre reminder of conflict in our cities in 2019. Oh, and Tybalt and Benvolio were played by women to present a 50/50 gender divide in the cast. Year 10 all loved the 'teenager friendly' performance and were complimented on their behaviour by theatre staff. A great day!
