This production of ‘Romeo and Juliet’ is far darker than the usual romantic gaze. It may well be the grittiest production of this play that you have ever seen. Following a gender-conscious casting process, Ruckus' vision re-imagines Shakespeare's 'Romeo and Juliet' with LGBTQ+ identities in mind, exploring themes such as mental health, loss of youth and the oppression of a violent society. In embracing the violent nature of the play, we explore the dichotomy of the body, and how it exists as a space for love and violence. By embracing the traumatic undercurrent of this play, we guarantee an engaging, and truly tragic, experience.
