Synopsis


Romeo is a teenage single dad hanging on tight.


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


Two 18-year-olds raised a few streets apart - but from entirely different worlds - crash into first love and are knocked off their feet.


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


Following their critically acclaimed productions Iphigenia in Splott and Killology, director Rachel O'Riordan reunites with Gary Owen to deliver his new play inspired by Shakespeare's romantic tragedy.
