Romeo and Juliet at Bath Abbey

THE ancient beautiful Bath Abbey will be a stunning venue for Bristol-based theatre company Antic Disposition’s summer 2024 production of Romeo and Juliet, from 12th to 31st August.

Anyone who has been to an Antic Disposition performance, often in historic settings such as Henry V in Bath Abbey or Temple Church in London, will know that the company blends contemporary acting and production style with respect for the text, brilliant use of music and a real feel for the atmosphere and ambience of the venue.

The story of Romeo and Juliet may be familiar but it is timeless and endlessly powerful.

In the scorching heat of summer, the streets of Verona simmer with tension. Two rival families are fighting an undeclared war. With emotions running high, Verona is a powder keg of barely suppressed violence. And when love strikes the houses of Montague and Capulet, it sparks a chain of events that will blow the city apart.

This summer, experience the world’s greatest love story like never before … in the majestic setting of Bath Abbey, let the passion, drama and magic of Shakespeare’s romantic masterpiece unfold around you in Antic Disposition’s new, immersive, promenade production.

Romeo and Juliet is directed by Peter Brook Award-winning Ben Horslen and John Risebero for Antic Disposition.
