Lost Dog: Juliet and Romeo at Capstone Theatre, Liverpool 9 November 2018 Tickets from £9.50 — Book now

Lost Dog’s new show – Juliet and Romeo – reveals the real story of Romeo and Juliet. It turns out they didn’t die in a tragic misunderstanding, they grew up and lived happily ever after. Well, they lived at least. Now they are 40ish, at least one of them is in the grips of a mid-life crisis, they feel constantly mocked by their teenage selves and haunted by the pressures of being the poster couple for romantic love.

They have decided to confront their current struggles by putting on a performance – about themselves. Their therapist told them it was a terrible idea. With Lost Dog’s blend of dance, theatre and comedy this duet takes on our cultural obsession with youth and our inevitable issues with longevity.

Performed as part of Liverpool’s LEAP Dance Festival, Juliet and Romeo is recommended for ages 13 + and has a running time of just over an hour.

This performance will feature Audio Description and a pre-show touch tour for blind and visually impaired audience members.

Juliet and Romeo is co-commissioned by Battersea Arts Centre, The Place, and Warwick Arts Centre. The work is funded by Arts Council England via Grants for the Arts. Production time supported by Lancaster Arts.
