Romeo and Juliet
  • July 19, 2017 - July 23, 2017
    6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Back by popular demand, Butterfly Theatre Company are delighted to return to Bristol Shakespeare Festival with their latest production of ‘Romeo & Juliet’.

Be transported to the historic ruins of Verona and witness this haunting tale of tragic love. As the ghosts of these infamous characters emerge from the surrounding rocks, they retell the salutary story of Juliet and her Romeo. And as each character relives their life and fate, the souls of the dead fade back into the surroundings from whence they came, until they are awoken and condemned to retell the tale that haunts them once more. Hate versus love, death versus life. Shakespeare’s enduring story remains as powerful as it was 400 years ago, and will remain so long into the future….. will we learn its lessons?

6.30pm and 8.15pm start times Wed – Fri
4.00pm, 6.30pm and 8.15pm start times Sat only
2.00pm, 3.45pm and 6.30pm start times Sun only

Tickets are £14-£16 and you can buy them here
