Romeo & Juliet
Chiltern Shakespeare Company and Fourways are performing Romeo & Juliet in the open air at Home Farm, Hall Barn, Beaconsfield. Before the show there will be ample opportunities to explore the meadow, picnic by the lake, then enjoy live theatre in our 2022 venue, Home Farm.
Set in a city torn apart by feuds and gang warfare, Shakespeare’s immortal drama tells the story of star-crossed lovers, rival dynasties, and bloody revenge. Romeo and Juliet is a hymn to youth and the thrill of forbidden love, charged with sexual passion and violence, but also a warning of death: a dazzling combination of bawdy comedy and high tragedy.
Romeo and Juliet – the star-crossed lovers……
Like the two protagonists, this story never grows old – because we all want to believe in a love that transcends the expected, enables great sacrifice and really can be called “true love”.
In the telling of this most loved of Shakespeare’s stories, weaving together all the elements that make great theatre, we can be transported into the world of the two young lovers who burned so brightly and so briefly, but left an indelible mark in their world and, thanks to William Shakespeare, on ours.
Performances are Tuesday to Saturday evenings with a Saturday and Sunday matinee.
Grounds open at 5:30pm for evening performances and 11:30am for Matinees.
