Romeo and Juliet

Sheffield Crucible, 2015

'Wonderful, quirky and very British...The best thing is that Jonathan Humphreys has left Romeo and Juliet alone. There is a real spark between them. They are young and impetuous and star-crossed. To watch Shakespeare, any Shakespeare, can be intimidating. This production is not. It feels as if Romeo and Juliet might be people that we know. And that, truly, is an achievement.'
The Times**** Critics Choice

‘Youthful ardour as a propulsive force is writ their finest moments [Freddie Fox and Morfydd Clark] communicate the authentic air of life in early bud'
Daily Telegraph ****

'Sexual desire, erotic attachment and out-of-control emotions simmer and then boil over...Outstanding performances by a youthful cast in Jonathan Humphreys’ freshly minted production'
The Stage ****

'A compelling revival (directed by Jonathan Humphreys) that is set in contemporary times on streets that frequently run with blood...A production to be treasured'
Yorkshire Post ****

'It's a production which exudes youthful energy along with romantic charm which should appeal to that very audience.'
Sheffield Telegraph
