Lost Dog: Juliet & Romeo
Lost Dog's show reveals the real story of Romeo and Juliet. It turns out they didn't die in a tragic misunderstanding, they grew up and lived happily ever after.
Well, they lived at least.
Now they're 40ish, at least one of them is in the grips of a mid-life crisis, they feel constantly mocked by their teenage selves and haunted by the pressures of being the poster couple for romantic love. They have decided to confront their current struggles by putting on a performance - about themselves. Their therapist told them it was a terrible idea.
With Lost Dog's blend of dance, theater and comedy, this duet, directed by Olivier Award-nominated Ben Duke, takes on our cultural obsession with youth and our inevitable issues with longevity.
"A brilliant piece of dance theatre that's honest and insightful about long-term relationships - and very funny" - Lyndsey Winship in The Guardian
