A new interpretation of the age old classic. Romeo and Juliet is given an almost modern yet timeless depiction with actors speaking in the original text.
What is unique about this production is that the set consists of just 12 transparent cubes that are rearranged and modified in different ways to build scenes such as the balcony as well as the tomb where Juliet lies, right in front of the audience itself as the play progresses.
Love is visually represented in many forms throughout the play, right from the costumes to the lights that emanate from the scene itself and music that accompanies the play to compliment the emotions shown on stage.
