Romeo and Jude is written by our brilliant Marty Ross and is a gritty re-imagining of Shakespeare’s famous tragedy – full of passion, emotion, scandal, disillusionment and family fallout.
A brand new modern day audio adaptation of William Shakespeare’s classic love story starring Owen Teale (Game of Thrones), Matthew Tennyson (Pride), Nick Moran (Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels) and Ricky Norwood (EastEnders). It also stars Wireless Theatre regulars Sarah Whitehouse, Ceri Gifford, Mark Straker and Josephine Arden and was directed by David Beck.
An amateur dramatics company in a suburban corner of nowhere. Two men with very different lives, brought together when cast in the roles of Romeo and Juliet; ‘As Shakespeare would have it’, in the words of their eccentric and enigmatic director. Though the elicit romance doesn’t only play out on the stage.
Against the odds, our heroes struggle to keep hold of each other, and to keep a handle on real life. As the pressures, threats and expectations of their worlds draw in, as per Shakespeare’s original, the pithy banter from the first few scenes evaporates away to reveal a very real and present danger…and even tragedy.
