Legendary classic retold with puppets
A feud between two families has lasted for decades, and has been inherited. But what will prevail – love or tradition?
With humor and ingenuity, the touching tale of Romeo and Juliet is made heartfelt, lively and dynamic. Two, whose love will not succumb to fear, prejudice and power. Full of emotion and issues both children and adults can recognize.
”Teater Refleksion’s puppet version of ’Romeo and Juliet’ doesn’t just rewrite Shakespeare’s classic as a childrens’ fairy tale. …It simply tells the entire gruesome tragedy in a way, children understand.” – Theatre News
