Shakespeare with a Twist: Romeo & Juliet
Event providers: UCEN Manchester
“O Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou Romeo?”
“Did my heart love till now? forswear it, sight! For I ne’er saw true beauty till this night.”
“For never was a story of more woe, than this of Juliet and her Romeo.”
The classic story of boy meets girl; girl’s family hates boy’s family; boy’s family hates girl’s family; boy kills girl’s cousin; boy and girl kill themselves.
Eat your heart out, Hollyoaks.
Bit of classic, bit of modern,
Bit of rap, a bit of tap.
