Award-winning show comes to Finchley with a new spin on Shakespeare’s most famous play

Juliet & Romeo, Lost Dog’s award-winning version of Shakespeare’s teenage love story, has been playing to sell-out audiences all over the UK since February 2018.

To celebrate its second anniversary, the show is going on tour and comes to artsdepot on Saturday, March 21.

For the spring 2020 tour, Kip Johnson, a leading light in the world of contemporary dance, will take over the role of Romeo and will perform opposite the National Dance Award winner for Outstanding Female Modern Performance, Solène Weinachter.

Juliet & Romeo presents a world in which Shakespeare’s tragic teenagers survive, get married, have a child and are now in marriage counselling. Written and directed by Ben Duke, the show has performed to thousands of people at theatres, studios, village halls, and community centres, delighting audiences and critics alike with its clever portrayal of a middle-aged couple stuck with the legacy of their early fame.
