Romeo and Juliet

  • Glasgow Botanic Gardens 730 Great Western Road Glasgow, Scotland, G12 0UE United Kingdom (map)

Directed by Jennifer Dick

“My only love, sprung from my only hate.
Too early seen unknown, and known too late.
Prodigious birth of love it is to me
That I must love a loathed enemy.”

The original star cross'd lovers.

Two young people meet and fall in love. It should be simple. But all the forces in their universe conspire to tear them apart. Bard in the Botanics presents a thrilling new outdoor production of Shakespeare's tragic love story. It's a story about young lovers right now, battling prejudice and old animosities, rejecting the expectations of the world and its labels. Their love is strong and true. But is it strong enough?

Fall in love and break your heart - join us for this unmissable retelling of the greatest ever romance...

“My bounty is a boundless as the sea,
My love as deep. The more I give to thee,
The more I have, for both are infinite.”
