“The beauty of Rippon Lea House and Gardens only enhance(s) the experience of the play as the young players recite this story of young love, the power of family, the value of friends and the futility of hate.”

this of Juliet and her Romeo.”

“Lit up like Disneyland, the actors are overshadowed by the majesty of the building and lost in the vast space of the gardens…The Australian Shakespeare Company has made the bold choice to dress the actors in the bright costumes of a Bollywood musical. It’s a colourful display and really comes to life during the first dance number.”
