‘Juliet and Romeo’ at Neasham Reading Room

On Wednesday 22nd April 2020 at 7.30pm, Lost Dog Productions present ‘Juliet and Romeo’ at Neasham Reading Room.

This highly acclaimed contemporary dance includes humour and spoken word, and it premiered at Sadlers Wells in 2018.

“Lost Dog’s show reveals the real story of Romeo and Juliet. It turns out they didn’t die in a tragic misunderstanding, they grew up and lived happily ever after. Well… they lived at least. Now they are 40ish, at least one of them is in the grips of a mid-life 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. Directed by Olivier Award nominated Ben Duke, this blend of dance, theatre and comedy examines our obsession with youth and ‘how things are supposed to be’. A humorous and heartfelt investigation into love, loss and longevity.”
