A love sprung from hate…
What if Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet had told a different story?
Mercutio and Tybalt. Sworn enemies and… fated lovers.
In this fresh twist on the world’s most iconic love story, Starcrossed unveils the intrigue and passion of a forbidden romance forged in strife, stifled by circumstance and silenced by history.
Reimagining Shakespeare’s verse for the modern age, Rachel Garnet’s tender, witty and heart-wrenching new play gives beloved characters new life, and has received critical acclaim since first premiering at the New York International Fringe Festival in 2018.
Coming to Wilton’s Music Hall in June 2022!
Presented by JACOB SCHOTT & VISCERAL ENTERTAINMENT in association with TICKING CLOCK THEATRE.
Playwright: Rachel Garnet
