Defiant heroine elevates Romeo and Juliet

“Unconvinced that Shakespeare was a sentimentalist and this particular work was simply another romance, director Scott Wentworth fittingly shapes his production [Romeo and Juliet] as the tragedy that it is, focusing on the needless conflicts of the day, the resultant outbursts of familial violence in the streets of Verona and ultimately the suicides that claim the lives of – not just the star-crossed young lovers – but of others caught in the crossfire.

With this approach Wentworth, a skilled craftsman both on and behind the stage, draws from his gifted cast some of the finest and most clearly defined performances in recent memory.”
