Romeo and Juliet (2011)

Play dates 20 April 2011


Presented in a timeless yet contemporary style, the Company’s “Romeo & Juliet” featured very realistic stage fights choreographed by Eon Romswinckel who also played Tybalt. A real bed was moved on and offstage several times, real flowers surrounded Juliet on her ‘deathbed’ and during the course of the production, ‘Romeo’ and ‘Juliet’ were a real couple – which made their love story all the more convincing. And no one who saw the play is likely to have forgotten the blessings of Father Laurence…


It is the classic tragic love story. Love at first sight as Romeo meets Juliet, even though their families have been in a feud no one can remember the beginning of. The street fights, the secret marriage and tragic deaths of the young lovers were given their own spin by the Cobbenhagen Company.
