Two families caught in a storm of words, divided by misjudged loyalties and sibling rivalries. Warring brothers, wicked sisters and powerless fathers discover too late that love can't be measured.

Shakespeare's greatest tragedy abridged for a younger audience.

Fusing circus skills and physical theatre, combined with Shakespeare's words spoken with clarity, this version of the play is suitable for children aged 7+ and includes interactive elements for the audience.

The production will play to nearly 4000 primary school children throughout the 2017 summer term.
