Romeo & Juliet

This event has now passed.

Shakespeare’s Globe has taken the difficult but responsible decision to close our doors to the public until further notice, ceasing performances, education activities and tours.

As you can imagine, this has been one of the hardest decisions we have had to make, but a necessary one as we consider the safety and well-being of both the public, staff and volunteers.

We hope to open the doors to our wooden O as soon as possible – but in this unprecedented time for theatre, and as a charity that receives no annual government subsidy, we are in desperate need of donations to help us to continue to strive in the future.

We ask at this time of huge risk to our beloved theatre that you donate if you can. Any amount, large or small, will be hugely appreciated.

With love, solidarity and thanks to you all from the whole Globe family.

If   when we meet again, why, we shall smile

MAKE A DONATION NOW

Shakespeare’s romantic tragedy speaks of destiny, chance and fortune all sparked by a historic family feud.

Romeo and Juliet die. It’s not a spoiler. It’s written in the stars. Fate. Final. Finite.

But what if it isn’t?

What might have happened if other choices had been made?
What if all the tragedy and heartache could have been avoided?
What if the loss of those young lives could have been prevented?

One fairer than my love! the all-seeing sun
Ne’er saw her match since first the world begun.

– Act I, scene 2

ROMEO & JULIET STORY

A violent street brawl between their rival families is the prelude to Romeo’s first encounter with Juliet. Despite this, and the fact that Juliet has been promised to another man in marriage, they fall in love. But any plans for their future happiness are cruelly destroyed by renewed violence between the two families – and while the adults remain almost comically preoccupied with their own affairs, among their children a hidden tragedy begins to unfold.
