Join us this summer at one of the best loved plays of Shakespeare

Romeo and Juliet - taking flightRomeo and Juliet

It’s Verona 1963 and it’s the annual college Boat Race, the high society courtship event for the rich, beautiful and perfectly coiffed. Times are turbulent, so you’ll really need to support your house, whether it be Montague or Capulet, as they battle it out on the river.

A new take on a very old tale – you can expect to see Taking Flight’s signature traits – exciting visual theatre with live original music and plenty of comedy.

All performances feature BSL by Sami Thorpe with additional translation by Ilan Dwek and Duffy.

All performances also feature live audio description.

This year for the first time we will be experimenting with outdoor captioning.

This is promenade performance – it moves around and you move with it.

The boat race will take place come rain or shine – just bring your brolly and wrap up warm. If you have any other access requirements, please get in contact to let us know.

Romeo & Juliet will tour all over Wales, in beautiful outdoor spaces. 2016 marks 400 years since Shakespeare’s death and we’d love for you to join us for one of his most famous plays.

Alastair Sill as Audio Describer and Sami Thorpe as BSL interpreter, The Winter’s Tale 2015, which won BEST ENSEMBLE at The Wales Theatre Awards 2016.
