Romeo & Juliette

Concept adapted by Roxane Cabassut and Directed by Aileen Gonsalves

Produced by Emerge Production House

A bilingual, reimagined, modernized version of a Shakespeare classic.
 
Set in a time where every country around the world has adopted ‘Brexit’ like policies and closed their borders to neighbouring countries. No freedom of travel has seen generations grow up in a world where they only every experience what their culture has to offer.
 
We enter at a volatile time where England and France, former allies, are on the brink of a war. The two heads, Prime Minister Montague of England and Ambassador Capulet of France are forced to come together to attempt to avoid such devastation.
 
At this summit, Romeo, the son of the English Prime Minister meets the daughter of the French
Ambassador, Juliette. A story of forbidden love unfolds.
