Lent Week 7
“From ancient grudge break to new mutiny”
Juliet is deciding whether she wants to marry her parents’ idea of the ‘perfect Muslim husband’. Meanwhile, Romeo sits in the local chicken shop with his friends, who are trying to convince him to move on from the girl he thought was ‘the one’. Their summers pass in a blur of parties, violence and love, but they ultimately cannot avoid the roles they are expected to play.
Incorporating the experiences of its all-BME cast and production team, this contemporary adaptation updates Shakespeare’s classic tragedy to explore minority experiences.
