Romeo & Juliet at Puzzlewood
Back by popular demand, Butterfly Theatre Company are delighted to return to Puzzlewood with their latest production of Shakespeare's 'Romeo & Juliet', in association with Puzzlewood.
Shakespeare's tale of two star-crossed lovers comes alive in the magical surroundings of Puzzlewood. As an archaeologist guides you through the historic ruins of Verona, he shares the tale of the beautiful love story surrounding the only statue still intact - the famous beauty, Juliet. Suddenly the statue breathes with life, along with all the people in the tale. Hate versus love, death versus life.
Shakespeare's enduring story remains as powerful as it was 400 years ago, and will remain so long into the future..... will we learn its lessons?
You will be enthralled by this unique retelling of Shakespeare's beloved tragedy. Come and be transported as you follow the actors around this historic entrancing woodland.
