ETT’s Artistic Director Stephen Unwin, directs a cast of 15 in a major new revival of William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet.

Post war Verona.
Two warring families.
A chance meeting between two of their children.
A passion for each other sets a fateful chain of events in motion.
Hindered, frustrated, thwarted and defeated, only their deaths can bring an end to their parents’ bitter feud.
