Romeo & Juliet

Friday, 10th November, 7:30 pm - Saturday, 18th November, 7:30 pm

You might know or have heard of William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, but you definitely don’t know it like this! 

BlackBox Creative’s retelling of Shakespeare’s classic tale re-imagines the ill-fated lovers as inmates in a fictional New Zealand women’s correctional facility. The Capulet gang, are at odds with the Montague’s, Juliet is discovering a different side of her sexuality, the Nurse fights to be himself in a system that doesn’t recognise his gender, and it’s happening under Prince’s watch, all within the confines of Shakespeare’s original text.
