"These violent delights have violent ends, 

And in their triumph die like fire and powder, 

Which as they kiss consume.” 

Your family teaches you to hate. 

You meet someone forbidden. 

You act without thinking. 

Verona is a powder keg of blood-lust and rage, with death threats proudly shouted in the streets. 

As two families wage war, will a young couple become the next sacrifice of this brutal feud? 

ROMEO AND JULIET:  Wednesday 14 June - Saturday 29 July.
