ROMEO & JULIET 2018
3 - 24 February
It was eight years since GSC last staged the world’s most famous love-story, in fact it was the very first show we staged in Holy Trinity Church. Taking our inspiration from the magnificent surroundings of Surrey’s largest Georgian church, this production was once again set in the decadent and dangerous Georgian Period.
We assembled a wonderful ensemble cast, featuring one of Britain's best-loved actresses, Harriet Thorpe, to play Juliet's Nurse.
Director Charlotte Conquest returned, who directed the 2010 production, and she was joined by long-time GSC Set & Costume Designer Neil Irish, Sound Designer Matt Eaton and Lighting Designer Peter Harrison (Julius Caesar).
Composer Mary McAdam also returned with her hauntingly beautiful choral arrangements that she created in 2010 and regular Fight Director Philip d’Orléans was in charge of the swords!
