Blurb

Romeo. Juliet. Tragedy? Not this time! Commedia of Errors Theatre Company have transformed one of Shakespeare’s greatest sob stories into a riotous comedy. Find the bard’s classic text given a complete Commedia dell’Arte makeover. With lashings of slapstick, mime and physical comedy and all of the truth and heartbreak of the original, it’s a cocktail not to be missed! This new adaptation of the classic tale of love and loss will leave you lost for words.

What reviewers said

“From wooing to dying, every move and line is delivered with ludicrous energy.”

“Like a Christmas pantomime, there is no need to suspend disbelief. The fourth wall comes crashing down with a wink and a nod.”
