Lost Dog’s new show reveals the real story of Romeo and
Juliet. It turns out they didn’t die
in a tragic misunderstanding; they grew up and lived happily ever after.
Well they lived at least.
Now they are 40ish, at least one of them is in the grips of
a mid-life crisis, they feel constantly mocked by their teenage
selves and haunted by the pressures of being the poster couple for romantic love. They
have decided to confront their current struggles by putting on a performance – about themselves. Their therapist
told them it was a terrible idea.
With Lost Dog’s blend of dance, theatre and comedy
this duet, directed by Olivier Award-nominated
Ben Duke, takes on our cultural obsession with youth and our inevitable issues with longevity.
