Heartbreak Productions specialise in high quality outdoor theatre in unusual spaces such as shopping centres, castles, stately homes and parks.
Shakepeare's Romeo and Juliet is given the 'Heartbreak' treatment and performed in a fresh and interesting way in the lakeside setting of Brueton Park, Solihull, just as the sun is setting.
Join Heartbreak for this super glam outdoor adaptation of Shakespeare’s star crossed lovers, Romeo and Juliet. Set in the here and now, and mixing in some modern language, music, and technology, this production explores how one of the most celebrated tales of passionate love would play out in the 21st century. So bring a chair and pack the picnic (after you’ve uploaded it to Instagram, obvs!). Dress to impress and remember to charge your phone, as tweeting, snapchat, and selfies are highly advisable. After all, if you haven’t posted it online, has it really even happened?
Bring friends, picnic, your own seat or blanket and enjoy this talented cast performing a fanastic literary work.
Tickets are cheaper when bought in advance and the first 336 tickets sold are guaranteed a seat in our extreme wet weather venue, back in the theatre. Tickets to the Arena are limited to 450 to ensure that everyone can see and hear adequately as well as have room to picnic. The show is aimed at adults but children aged around 10+ are welcome. There are two other performances in Brueton Park in 2019 - Please see Gangsta Granny by David Walliams (expected to sell out).
Tickets purchased via phone or ONLINE (up to 3pm today) will be printed and taken to the park for collection at the gate.
Toilets are available in nearby Parkrdige Nature centre when open + one portable toilet on site. The Parkridge Centre closes after the interval. There is some parking at Old Warwick Road entrance - not guaranteed, please following ticketing instructions onsite.
THERE IS NO SEATING PROVIDED - please bring your own folding seat, blanket, bin liner or anything else you may want to sit on as the grass may be damp. The gates to the performance arena will open at 6pm.
