Enemies. Balconies. Kissing. Sausage rolls! Shakespeare’s iconic tale is ‘rubbished’ in this debut Fringe run. Age 3+.
Enemies. Balconies. Kissing. Sausage rolls!?! The all-male, all-silly, Rubbish Shakespeare Company bring their new comic interpretation of Romeo and Juliet to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, fresh off their North-West tour.
Rubbish Shakespeare’s version adds a fresh, comic twist to a beloved classic, to be enjoyed by anyone regardless of whether they like Shakespeare or not. Expect an hour of surprising characters, unkempt wigs and the burliest Juliet yet. Ideal for the whole family. Marvel as these four play 16 characters between them, frantically swap wigs, hats and accents and try to keep in character.
Lee, Alex, Alex and Clem are the nationally renowned Rubbish Shakespeare Company, touring schools UK-wide, driven by the ethos of ‘Shakespeare for All’, and whose previous work with the ‘real’ RSC has received national attention. Ideal for the whole family (3+).
‘Unique and vibrant’ (Express).
