Theatre: Romeo & Juliet

Music, humour, movement, and a whole lot of drama – this is one massive, fast-paced Shakespearean adventure in the great British outdoors!

The Three Inch Fools take to the road with five actors, all manner of musical instruments and an inventive take on Shakespeare’s most famous story, Romeo & Juliet.

The Fools are dusting off their instruments and stepping back into the great outdoors, with a brand new production of Romeo & Juliet. Prepare for a carnival of passion and imagination, as The Fools present the world’s best-known love story at one of the most beautiful and historic Museum in the UK, the Weald & Downland Living Museum.

This romantic epic will be getting the full Three Inch Fools treatment: live music-making, deft physicality and vibrant story-telling. Expect fast-paced drama, plenty of musical instruments and many a quick costume change along the way!
