Lent Week 0
ETG’s 2020 production of Romeo and Juliet, Shakespeare’s classic tragedy of forbidden love, sets the fateful events within a school classroom, these famous characters reimagined as modern-day students, parents and teachers. This familiar world exposes both the joy of young love and the horror of unnecessary violence in their extremes. This student company hopes to reinvigorate this well-known and well-loved text by drawing new focus to loss of hope and innocence, the consequences of generational actions, and ultimately what it means to be young in today’s world.
While this year's tour has sadly been cancelled due to COVID-19, Romeo and Juliet will complete its run at the start of Lent Term, with additional matinees to be streamed to schools to uphold the society's commitment to education and theatre.
