Be prepared for belly laughs, slapstick comedy and lots of incredible music!
Oddsocks are delighted to be breathing new life into Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet by giving it a musical Mods & Rockers twist!
"Some of the funniest, fastest slapstick theatre we’re likely to see in a long time!"
There’s Nowhere to Run To for the Capulets and Montagues as violent confrontation stalks every meeting, even Down in the Tube Station at Midnight. Meanwhile, Juliet’s Nurse is looking forward to a good old Twistand Shout at the Capulet party, which Romeo’s mates are planning to gatecrash.
"Bawdy, mad cap and energetic!"
Romeo has doubts about going to the Capulet Nite Klub but that is where he meets his Juliet, and It Must Be Love. Maybe, just maybe, The Power of Love will end the families’ violent feud.
"Plenty of laughs throughout!"

5 things you need to know before coming to see Romeo & Juliet in Sir Nigel Gresley Square.

1. You’ll need to bring something to sit on. Camping chairs or picnic blankets are ideal.

2. It’s outdoor, and if it rains, the show must go on! And don't forget the Factor 50 if it's a hot one. 

3. Wrap up warm! It is Britain not the Bahamas, and even on a warm day, when the sun goes down it gets a bit nippy. Blankets are a great idea!

4. Plastic is key. We don’t want lots of smashed glass around, so let’s keep it plastic if you’re bringing your own glasses or cups.

5. You can take your seats from 4pm and the show starts at 5pm.
