Romeo and Juliet

This summer The Lord Chamberlain’s Men return to Kiplin Hall with their 10th Anniversary production of Romeo and Juliet – a brand new, action-packed adventure of the world’s greatest love story.

For 400 years the tale of Shakespeare’s ‘star-cross’d lovers’ has gripped audiences with its perfect blend of passion, excitement and heart-stopping thrills including of course the most famous balcony scene of all time.

In this tale of two feuding families in Verona, two young lovers, driven by youthful passion and blind love, enter a forbidden affair. The families’ reactions to this result in murder, betrayal and heartbreak. Faced with banishment and separation the two youngsters hatch a drastic plan with terrible consequences… Can love truly conquer all?

 Join the players in the romantic lakeside setting at Kiplin Hall. With Elizabethan costume, music and dance this award winning all male cast production is a must see open air hit of the summer. Bring a picnic, or book a pre-theatre supper, settle back and be swept up in the romance, the drama and the tragedy that is - Romeo & Juliet.

 Mark Puddle, of The Lord Chamberlain’s Men, says Romeo & Juliet is the play that people always want to see. “The play’s eternal themes of love, honour and revenge still resonate with modern audiences. What could be more perfect for a summer’s evening than a classical telling of this immortal love story set against the background of one of North Yorkshire’s most beautiful historic houses and gardens”

 Kiplin Hall’s Curator, Dawn Webster, agrees: “Romeo and Juliet is a wonderful, moving play – one of Shakespeare’s best! The Lord Chamblerlain’s Men have performed at Kiplin Hall for the last seven years and their productions are always superb. I am very curious to see the young man who plays Juliet!”
