This version of Shakespeare’s most famous and best-loved tragedies was filmed before a live audience at Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre in the heart of London in 2009.  It features Ellie Kendrick (Juliet) and Adetomiwa Eun (Romeo) and an excellent cast in this timeless love story set against a background of rivalry and conflict.  Direction is by Dominic Dromgoole.
