Romeo and Juliet

The original star cross'd lovers.

Two young people meet and fall in love. It should be simple. But all the forces in their universe conspire to tear them apart. Bard in the Botanics presents a thrilling new outdoor production of Shakespeare's tragic love story. It's a story about young lovers right now, battling prejudice and old animosities, rejecting the expectations of the world and its labels. Their love is strong and true. But is it strong enough?

Fall in love and break your heart - join us for this unmissable retelling of the greatest ever romance.

The critical consensus

A spiky and cracklingly inventive take on the original teenage dream.

****(*)Neil Cooper, Coffee-Table Notes, 25/06/2018

A Romeo And Juliet for our times that holds the audience in thrall, from start to finish.

****(*)Joyce McMillan, The Scotsman, 30/06/2018

A generally misconceived production.

Mark Brown, Scottish Stage, 06/07/2018

Seems very much in keeping with the months of June and July and the Pride festivities.
