2106 ROMEO TOUR RSC Website Images_Hub with Red Strip_1440x1368

Register now to watch our 2019 production of Romeo and Juliet on demand from 31 October to 4 November 2022

Ripped apart by the bitter divisions of their parents, two young people will risk everything to be together.

The most famous story of love at first sight explodes with intense passion and an irresistible desire for change. Will this spark a revolution or will division continue to tear through generations?

Richard III Schools' Broadcast


Our research tells us that preparing young people to watch a production greatly increases their engagement and enjoyment. We believe that using rehearsal room approaches to Shakespeare in the classroom can help students of all ages and abilities gain a meaningful connection with his work. All schools registered for the broadcasts will have access to a range of supporting materials.
