Continuing our series of encore screenings from the archives of National Theatre Live.
Romeo and Juliet risk everything to be together. In defiance of their feuding families, they chase a future of joy and passion as violence erupts around them.
Shot on a single stage in an empty theatre over seventeen days during the global pandemic. This bold new film brings to life the remarkable backstage spaces of the National Theatre in which desire, dreams and destiny collide to make Shakespeare’s romantic tragedy sing in an entirely new way.
Jessie Buckley (Wild Rose, Judy) and Josh O’Connor (The Crown, God’s Own Country) play Juliet and Romeo. The award-winning cast also includes Tamsin Greig, Fisayo Akinade, Adrian Lester, Lucian Msamati & Deborah Findlay.
