Be enthralled by the re-imagined classic tale of Romeo & Juliet where the two lovers are two adolescent schoolboys in a Catholic boarding school during the 1950s. Watch as their love for one another becomes the ultimate forbidden love in an austere, repressive all male milieu.
The play follows four pupils discover an illicit copy of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet and start acting it out in their dormitory late one night. Perceptions and understandings are turned upside down as the fun of play acting turns serious and the words and meanings begin to hit home and universal truths emerge.
