National Theatre Live

Romeo & Juliet

Thursday, February 8 • 1 & 7pm

★★★★★ “A pacy, painterly and emotionally raw production” – Guardian

★★★★★ “Riveting. A testament to the power of the imagination” – Telegram

★★★★ “All the verve of a slickly edited movie, yet still exudes an aura of raw theatricality” – The Times

★★★★ “The National Theatre has created a thing of beauty” – Evening Standard

Romeo and Juliet risk everything to be together. In defiance of their feuding families, they chase a future of joy and passion as violence erupts around them. This bold new film brings to life the remarkable backstage spaces of the National Theatre in which desire, dreams and destiny collide to make Shakespeare’s romantic tragedy sing in an entirely new way. Jessie Buckley (Wild Rose, Judy) and Josh O’Connor (The Crown, God’s Own Country) play Juliet and Romeo. The award-winning cast includes Tamsin Greig, Fisayo Akinade, Adrian Lester, Lucian Msamati, Deborah Findlay.
