Back by popular demand, Butterfly Theatre Company are delighted to return to Bristol Shakespeare Festival with their latest production of ‘Romeo & Juliet’, in association with Arnos Vale cemetery.

Shakespeare’s tale of two star-crossed lovers comes alive in the unique setting of Arnos Vale. 

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?
