The classic story of two star-crossed lovers is being told in a professional production of Romeo & Juliet.

Following on from the sell-out show of Macbeth, the highly acclaimed Icarus Theatre Collective presents a bold and exciting new production of Shakespeare’s most tragic tale Romeo & Juliet.

In defiance of their families and in secrecy from their closest friends, hopeful young lives burn amidst a celestial and cataclysmic backdrop.

Sun and moon shine down on star-crossed lovers as they hide their passion and sexuality from their warring families and their closest friends.

Misadventure, family pride, and ancient quarrels abort and bury the most joyous of beginnings.

The most hopeful of love stories as Romeo and Juliet, driven apart, find their world becoming a constricting, single mausoleum of fate and death.

Catch the production at Bedford Theatre, based at Bedford School in De Parys Avenue, on Friday, January 25

Tickets are £12 and £10 concessions, or £5 for Bedford School students.

The show starts at 8pm and tickets are available by calling 01234 269519 or by going to
