Icarus Theatre and Kings Theatre Company have come together to present one of Shakespeare’s most famous tragedies, ‘Romeo & Juliet’, on November 19 and 20 at the Watergate Theatre.
Sun and moon shine down on star-crossed lovers as they hide their passion 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 & Juliet, driven apart, find their world becoming a constricting mausoleum of fate and death.
Supported by South Hill Park Centre and Kings Theatre Portsmouth, Icarus Theatre takes its fourth foray into a national tour of Shakespeare plays since its inception in 2004.
The Icarus Theatre Collective explores the harsh brutal side of modern and classical drama, creating contemporary theatre of the absurd while maintaining a cohesive, evocative story. Icarus aims to produce two mid-scale tours and a professional fringe production every year using diverse performance formats that are intellectual, engaging and always kinetic and dynamic.
