“This simple yet sophisticated production raises the bar for park Shakespeare. It should not be missed.”
– Pat Donnelly, The Gazette

« Un jeu physique éclairant texte et personnages d’un faisceau iconoclaste, parfois tragiquement espiègle et d’un ironisme fataliste, sous esprit sardoniquement festif et éclaté. »
– Yves Rousseau, le Quatrième

Romeo & Juliet (2010)

The Play

Duels. Untimely deaths. Low comedy. High drama. Bumbling nurses. Fumbling priests. Potions that work too well. Poisons that work even better. All fuelled by the mad, intoxicating fury of teenage love, whose passion inflamed a city and has enthralled audiences for more than 500 years. Why such undying appeal? Ask any teenager. Or better still, their parents. Romeo and Juliet is one of Shakespeare’s greatest and most popular plays with all the elements of a blockbuster.
