Romeo & Juliet

Presented by Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts

A girl and boy lock eyes at a party and fall instantly in love. But a bitter, bloody feud rages between their families. How much will they risk to be together?

British actor/director Michael Jenn directs WAAPA’s final year Acting students in a fresh new take on Shakespeare’s timeless tale of star-crossed lovers.

Performed in the intimate Studio Underground at the State Theatre Centre, this production of Romeo & Juliet sets the action in 1950s Italy, where the long-standing hostility between the Montagues and Capulets spills onto the streets. Against this background of warring families, the most famous story of love at first sight plays out to its heartbreaking conclusion.
