Romeo & Juliet (Open Air Theatre)

Three actors cooped up together during lockdown. Fuelled by cabin fever and with a bookshelf full of Shakespeare, they did what they do best and created an unhinged and bonkers, laugh-out-loud version of Romeo & Juliet.

With music, mayhem and more costume changes than you can shake a spear at, expect the HandleBards usual irreverent, charming and hilarious style to come bursting onto the stage at Ventnor Park. Forget the tears and tragedy, and get ready for some live and wired Shakespeare as you’ve never seen it before.
