utton Cinemas presents a “youthful and energetic take on Shakespeare’s tragedy” (WhatsOnStage) – “Romeo and Juliet,” captured live from the Royal Shakespeare Company in Stratford-Upon-Avon in England. This is the third play in the series of four presented in 2018 in cinemas around the world. Local audiences have been stunned by the quality of these productions, presented from the finest Shakespearean company working today.

Set in a world very like our own, this “Romeo and Juliet” is about a generation of young people born into violence and ripped apart by the bitter divisions of their parents.

The most famous story of love at first sight explodes with intense passion and an irresistible desire for change, but leads all too quickly to heartbreaking consequences. 

The Royal Shakespeare Company Live Series continues with a lighter production, “The Merry Wives of Windsor” on Oct. 10.
