A tense truce holds between the Capulets and the Montagues after the deaths of Romeo and Juliet. Benvolio, Romeo's best friend, is in love with Rosaline, Juliet's cousin; but Rosaline is bent on revenge. After Juliet was written by the playwright Sharman Macdonald and was commissioned for the 1999 National Theatre Connections programme.
"I was drawn to the plays edgy mood and Macdonald's choice of language that could place the story at any time or any location. It is a sincere, sorrowful, and angry play full of wonderful moments of theatre and a real challenge for the young performers." Stephen Finegold, director.
Performed as part of the National Theatre's Connections festival.
