Romeo & Juliet in Eastville Park Swimming Pool

About

After an award winning year, 'Site Specific Theatre Masters' (Bristol 24/7) Insane Root return with an ambitious and vibrant open-air adaptation of Shakespeare's enduring tale of love-at-first-sight. You're invited to enter a new vision of Verona - hidden in plain sight - full of ferocious brawls, raucous parties and secret trysts.

Originally built as a Victorian lido, the Eastville Park Swimming Pool was damaged by shrapnel in World War 2 and subsequently turned into a community garden. The layers of history and tension between the natural and human worlds provide the perfect landscape for this famous play. Romeo & Juliet will be the first theatre production to be adapted and staged directly in response to this haunting space.

The show will feature a company of ten performers playing multiple roles, weaving in and amongst the audience, and with a stripped back running time of approx. 100 minutes. The show is created by the same team behind Macbeth at the Redcliffe Caves and The Tempest in St John on the Wall's Crypt. It will showcase the company's hallmark live singing, with thrilling fight sequences, dynamic staging and dance.

But as old rivalries turn to bloody murder, be careful not to get caught in the cross-fire...
