Juliet and Romeo

Company Lost Dog


It turns out Romeo and Juliet 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. Blending dance, theatre and comedy this stunning duet takes on our cultural obsession with youth and our struggle with how things are supposed to be. A humorous and heartfelt investigation into love, loss and longevity.
