Sport For Jove present Romeo and Juliet at the Seymour Centre
- Thu Jul 21 - Fri Jul 29 2022
- From: $30.00
A brand new production of this incredible play for young audiences from Artistic Director, Damien Ryan. Sport for Jove’s furiously energetic production of Romeo & Juliet is characterised by a true vision of today’s youth - the rarely seen innovation of actual teenagers playing the play’s children – Juliet, Romeo, Paris, Mercutio, Benvolio, Balthazar - surrounded by an extraordinary cast of experienced players, gives this production an authenticity and honest rawness, danger and the genuine awkwardness of youth.
This production takes on the spirit of a filthy Italian opera, driven by love and heat, fights and fevers of the mind, and of course, by Shakespeare’s soaring poetry. We are carried to backcountry Verona, a profoundly insular town, trapped in cycles of tradition and vendetta, staring out at the future with moral pollution at its heart. Only its children’s courage to express themselves will bring change. With the mad blood stirring, two young lovers meet and set in motion the most iconic love story of all time, that of Juliet and her Romeo.
This curriculum-aligned production is a thrilling portrayal of Shakespeare for young audiences, and essential viewing for students to experience live.
Be sure not to miss out on this innovative production of Shakespeare’s classic.
When: 21 - 29 July 2022
Where: Seymour Centre, Cnr City Road &, Cleveland St, Chippendale
