Romeo and Juliet by Illyria

Two wealthy families, the Montagues and the Capulets, are at war. But when Romeo (Montague’s son) meets Juliet (Capulet’s daughter) they fall into a forbidden love with devastating consequences.

  • Booking advisable

From a secret rendezvous to a fateful duel, Shakespeare masterfully explores the enduring power of love, revenge and fate. But the surprising thing about this iconic tale is that it’s extremely funny too! A passionate, poetic and utterly gripping performance by Illyria in the great outdoors

As the summer sun goes down, Upton's south terrace makes a stunning backdrop for this classic tale of love and tragedy.
