Tue 6 Jun - Sat 29 Jul 2023

“Five stars simply isn’t enough”
The i

“The unmissable hit of the summer”
The Telegraph

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?

Following her Olivier Award-winning revival of A Streetcar Named Desire, Almeida Associate Director Rebecca Frecknall (Cabaret) delivers “a masterclass in how to tell Shakespeare” (The Telegraph) with an “innovative, fast-paced production” (The Guardian) that is “fresh and thrilling” (Time Out).

Featuring a “blistering and luminous” (The i) Isis Hainsworth (Our Ladies of Perpetual Succour) and an “outstanding” (The Times) Toheeb Jimoh (Ted Lasso), this reimagining has “an originality and intensity that sweeps all before it” (WhatsOnStage).
