Audiences at the Ambassadors Theatre are in for a treat in the autumn when the venue hands itself over to the National Youth Theatre for a season of shows that promises some stand-out productions. Among them is this updated version of Shakespeare’s classic Romeo And Juliet, which relocates the action from renaissance Verona to the New Wave period of the 1980s, and it will feature Paul Roseby as a director, working from an adapted script by Lolita Chakrabarti.
Romeo And Juliet introduces us to star crossed lovers Romeo Montague and Juliet Capulet, whose love is at odds with their feuding families. In this version the backdrop of economic woes and unemployment will be prevalent, giving this production an 80s edge that also echoes the current economic environment.
Paul Roseby directs and he does so as a former actor with the National Youth Theatre (in the 1980s). He first turned to directing over a decade ago with Age Sex Location at the Lyric Hammersmith and since then has been behind a host of works that have left him in a good position to bring this compelling production of Romeo And Juliet to the stage.
Alongside Tory Boyz and the high profile prequel to Hamlet entitled Prince Of Denmark, Romeo And Juliet takes pride of place at the Ambassadors Theatre with a run beginning on Monday 23rd September 2013.
