Synopsis


The National Theatre and Sherman Theatre present Romeo and Julie, a powerful and funny new play inspired by Shakespeare's romantic tragedy.


Romeo is a teenage single dad hanging on tight.


Julie is fighting to follow her dream of studying at Cambridge.


Two working-class eighteen-year-olds raised a few streets apart, but from entirely different worlds, crash into first love and are knocked off their feet.


But at this crossroads to the rest of their lives, both families fear the worst in a world of unequal opportunity.
