Sport for Jove's Summer Season - Romeo & Juliet and Twelfth Night
Romeo & Juliet
The existential crisis facing our world today, the product of a lack of practical leadership from our earth’s elders, has triggered a deafening chorus of ‘How dare you!’, screamed from the heart of our planet’s youth. And it’s not just about climate issues. What can children teach us in their struggle to be heard?
Our Artistic Director Damien Ryan brings us a furiously energetic new production of Romeo & Juliet, characterised by a true vision of today’s youth - the rarely seen innovation of actual teenagers playing the play’s children, all aged 14-18, and surrounded by an extraordinary cast of experienced players, will give this production an authenticity and honest rawness, danger and the genuine awkwardness of youth.
The twelfth night is the last day of the Christmas cycle, a night of madness where the world turns upside down, where grief and joy and laughter and tears are all one. When mere mortals have the power to choose who they are, what they believe in and who they may love. In this rollicking production from director Christopher Stollery, music and mayhem will fill the summer night.
Join us under the stars this summer for these heart-stopping productions.
