Romeo and Juliet

Today Digital Theatre Plus, the world's best HD online arts education resource, launches our newest Collection of full-length productions from Shakespeare's Globe in London.

The first title in this Collection is Romeo and Juliet. Directed by Dominic Dromgoole this production brings refreshing clarity to one of Shakespeare's most famous and best-loved tragedies, drawing out the contemporary relevance of this passionate teenage love story.

Ellie Kendrick (Game of Thrones, Upstairs Downstairs, The Diary of Anne Frank), a truly youthful Juliet, and Adetomiwa Edun (Merlin, The Hour), a boyish Romeo, head an excellent cast whose period costumes point to the timelessness of parental disapproval, adolescent temperament, rivalry and violence.

Following Romeo and Juliet, As You Like It and Love's Labour's Lost will also be joining the Collection. We've made each of these plays easier to explore with the addition of Key Scenes and Acts for in-depth analysis.
