Juliet and Romeo by Lost Dog

Showing on 27 September, 2018
Book Now


Lost Dog’s new 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.

With Lost Dog’s blend of dance, theatre and comedy this duet takes on our cultural obsession with youth and our inevitable issues with longevity.

Post Show chat

Join Ben Duke in conversation with Dr James Cole, Course Leader of Creative Writing at Arts University Bournemouth. They’ll discuss the use of Romeo & Juliet as a starting point for his creation, and how the original work continues to have relevance in today’s world.
