Romeo & Juliet

Gap II production – November/December 2018

by William Shakespeare

Directed by Amanda Crewes

The most famous love story in English literary history.

“’Romeo and Juliet’ explores the theme of forbidden love, so I wanted to look at the text in terms of what’s still often considered forbidden love today,” Crewes said.

“I wanted to determine whether changing the gender changed our view on this love story.”

In this version, there are two casts with Romeo and Juliet played by women one night, followed by men the next.
