An ancient feud spills out onto the streets and strict family and religious ties strain to keep control. At a high society party, a young man and woman meet, igniting a passion that sets all Verona alight.
To stay together, they must risk everything...
It’s 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 will be set in the decadent and dangerous Georgian Period.
We've assembled a wonderful ensemble cast, featuring one of Britain's best-loved actresses, Harriet Thorpe, who will be playing Juliet's Nurse.
Director Charlotte Conquest returns, who directed our first and only production of Romeo & Juliet in 2010. She's 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 returns with her hauntingly beautiful choral arrangements that she created in 2010 and regular Fight Director Philip d'Orleans will be in charge of the swords!
Post-Show Discussion - 15 Feb FREE
Stay in your seat after the show and the cast will come back on stage for an informal chat about the production.
