REVIEW: R&J | North Sea Boat Terminals
North Sea Boat Terminals’ reworking of Shakespeare’sRomeo and Juliet is budding with interesting and daring ideas that ask the audience to think about this tale of woe in new ways. It’s not just modernisation, not just deconstruction, although the adaptation does both.
The storyline and much of the essential dialogue remains, but has been condensed and then pulled apart slightly to allow for some stylistic breathing room. The original cast of a dozen or so has been shrunk to four actors, two playing the eponymous characters, and two playing all the rest.
