Romeo and Juliet

 "Your love says, like an honest gentleman,

and a courteous, and a kind, and a handsome, and, I warrant, a virtuous,--Where is your mother?"

27th, 28th of July at 7.30 pm.

29th of July at 2.00 pm & 7.30 pm.

Tyler Hill House

Tickets from £7.50

Directed by John Moss

The play:

Everyone knows Romeo and Juliet as the greatest love story ever told. Audiences come to see it

with expectations that should be met, such as getting to see a romantic balcony scene. But the play is also about a hateful feud and dysfunctional families which fail the very young teenage protagonists with behaviour that we now call child abuse. Our Romeo and Juliet will set out to be uncompromising and edgy, with an unflinching spotlight on teenage passion in a society that is out of control.

The director:

John Moss is a teacher of Shakespeare and drama with over forty years of directing experience. His

most recent shows have been Sir Thomas More (CSF, 2022) and Twelfth Night (Arden Theatre, 2023).

John loves the inclusive community ethos of CSF: he says directing for the festival is both enormous fun and a great privilege.

The venue:

Tyler Hill House, 13 Calais Hill, Tyler Hill, CT2 9LT
