Back by popular demand, Butterfly are delighted to return to Puzzlewood with their latest production of Shakespeare's 'Romeo & Juliet'.
Be transported to the historic ruins of Verona and witness this haunting tale of tragic love. As the ghosts of these infamous characters emerge from the surrounding rocks, they retell the salutary story of Juliet and her Romeo. And as each character relives their life and fate, the souls of the dead fade back into the surroundings from whence they came, until they are awoken and condemned to retell the tale that haunts them once more.
Hate versus love, death versus life.
Shakespeare's enduring story remains as powerful as it was 400 years ago, and will remain so long into the future..... will we learn its lessons?
The classic tale of two star-crossed lovers comes alive in the magical surroundings of Puzzlewood.Be enthralled by this unique retelling of Shakespeare's beloved tragedy as you follow the actors around the entrancing woodland.
