Romeo and Juliet: a gay reinvention

Curious Pheasant Theatre present Romeo and Juliet, an LGBT male led production, directed by Becky Mills. 

This bold re-imagining of William Shakespeare's classic love story uses physical theatre to portray two opposing rugby teams, grounding the piece in the 21st century. 

When the two men meet, the integrity of both teams is compromised and the unyielding pride of man threatens to destroy all that they know.

The heart of this piece is the two leads, who mutually give an incredibly beautiful and moving performance. The chemistry between Troy Chessman’s Romeo and  Bevan Thomson’s Juliet is palpable and feels so authentic that it instantly has you fully believing in their love.

Love is love!!!
