'Romeo & Juliet'


The Chocolate Factory


14th - 17th August 2013


Tim Heywood

"Bursting with youthful exuberance"
Review from Derby Evening Telegraph

Tim Heywood's 2013 production of 'Romeo & Juliet' was a truly unique take on the classic tale of doomed love. With a lively, talented cast and a striking setting in a disused factory the show used a promenade style to take the audience away from Verona to follow the banished Romeo on his journey through a starlit wilderness to the apothecary's eerie lair and, finally, to the tomb where he and Juliet meet their ultimate fate.

The show was a joy from start to finish and provided audiences with a one-of-a-kind theatre experience that they all thoroughly enjoyed!
