Shakespeare’s timeless story of forbidden loveWilliam Shakespeare’s famous star-crossed lovers take to the open air this summer, as Romeo and Juliet plays at Regent's Park.

Kimberley Sykes directs, having worked extensively with the Royal Shakespeare Company on productions including As You Like It. Joel MacCormack and Isabel Adomakoh Young star as Romeo and Juliet, with further casting including Cavan Clarke (Mercutio), Peter Hamilton Dyer (Friar Lawrence) and Michelle Fox (Tybalt).
