The Montagues and Capulets exist in perpetual violent opposition. Brawls abound and blood spills in a macho urban world defined by conflict. But as gang feuds rage, love blossoms.
Stylised, expressionistic, and bursting with an energy that embodies the youthful frenzied passion that made this text so iconic, An Táin's Company in Residence, Quintessence Theatre, use their slick, innovative physical ensemble story-telling techniques to tackle the greatest love story ever told. Relocating the world’s most famous lovers to late 90’s Louth and to lives defined by oppositio, plagued by historical conflict.
