The play is part of the ‘Playing Shakespeare with Deutsche Bank’ series, which takes place every year at Shakespeare’s Globe in London.
The 90-minute production retains Shakespeare’s original language and creates an entertaining performance for audiences of all ages
Romeo will be played by Will Featherstone, (previous roles at Shakespeare’s Globe include Sloop in Howard Brenton’s award winning Anne Boleyn, the Earl of Surrey in Henry VII and Orlando in As You Like It).

In Globe Education’s annual series he played Benedick in Much Ado About Nothing (2007 and 2008) and has directed Romeo and Juliet, Macbeth and A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
