Juliet and Romeo

Saturday 20 April

by Lost Dog Dance

Lost Dog’s new show reveals the real story of Romeo and Juliet. It turns out they didn’t die in a tragic misunderstanding, they grew up and lived happily ever after.

Well they lived at least.

Now they are 40ish, at least one of them is in the grips of a mid-life crisis, they feel constantly mocked by their teenage selves and haunted by the pressures of being the poster couple for romantic love. They have decided to confront their current struggles by putting on a performance about themselves. Their therapist told them it was a terrible idea.

With Lost Dog’s blend of dance, theatre and comedy, this duet, directed by Olivier Award nominated Ben Duke, takes on our cultural obsession with youth and our inevitable issues with longevity.


★★★★★ Pure pleasure. Smart, subversive and sexy. – The Guardian

★★★★★ Superb. Devastating realism and dark humour. – The Stage

★★★★ Insightful, funny and rich. Smoulders with equal parts lust and loathing. – Time Out

★★★★ Squirmingly funny and no less heartbreaking. – The Times

★★★★ Glorious. Full of warmth and intimacy. – The Independent

★★★★ Wonderful. Shakespeare’s lovers live on. – The Observer
