The River Street Theatre will exclusively present the Royal Shakespeare Company’s new production of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet on Sunday, Aug. 12 and Wednesday, Aug. 15 (both at 2 p.m.). The presentation is part of the the Stage2Screen Series and The Park Theatre’s Summer Festival 2018.

What if your first true love was someone you’d been told you must hate? Set in a world very like our own, this Romeo and Juliet is about a generation of young people born into violence and ripped apart by the bitter divisions of their parents. Shakespeare’s most famous story of love at first sight, explodes with intense passion and an irresistible desire for change, leads all too quickly to heartbreaking consequences.

The production was filmed live in high definition as it was staged at the RSC’s theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon on July 18, 2018.
