Lost Dog’s new show reveals the real story of Romeo and Juliet.
They didn’t die in a tragic misunderstanding but instead grew up and lived happily ever after.
Well at least they lived.
Now they’re 40ish, at least one of them is in the grips of a midlife crisis, they feel constantly mocked by their teenage selves and haunted by the pressures of being the poster couple for romantic love.
They have decided to confront their current struggles by putting on a performance – about themselves. Their therapist told them it was a terrible idea.
With Lost Dog’s blend of dance theatre and comedy this humorous and heartfelt show takes on our cultural obsession with youth and our inevitable issues with longevity.
Juliet and Romeo will run at Battersea Arts Centre 14 – 24 Feb, followed by a week at The Place. https://www.theplace.org.uk/whats-on/lost-dog-1
