“Join Juliet’s Nurse as she retells and sings her statement for our inquiry into the events of those hot July nights. Find out what created the impulsive and explosive atmosphere that lead to so many deaths. So far away it feels like the news today. We recreate the fights, loves and struggles of these lost youths. Set in 1301 Verona we keep the great verse and flow of the story with the nurse’s narration and slight linguistic modernisations.”
Suitable for ALL students and a refreshing perspective for lovers of the play.
Mixing modern language and original text it makes the story fun and crystal clear. The best way to experience the Bard which, lets face it, he designed to be enjoyed as a live show.
