Bringing digital cinema and theatre to the heart of the Peak District

National Theatre

Romeo And Juliet

We will be showing Romeo And Juliet, a specially filmed show from the National Theatre, on Tuesday 28th September at 7.00pm.

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.
