Romeo and Juliet

September 13, 1967 | The Royal Shakespeare Company
Directed by: Karolos Koun | Literature: William Shakespeare | Set Design: Timothy O'Brien
An age-old vendetta between two powerful families erupts into bloodshed. A young lovesick Romeo Montague (Ian Holm) falls instantly in love with Juliet Capulet (Estelle Kohler), who is due to marry her father’s choice, the County Paris (John Bell). With the help of Juliet’s nurse, the women arrange for the couple to marry the next day, but Romeo’s attempt to halt a street fight leads to the death of Juliet’s own cousin, Tybalt (Ian Hogg), for which Romeo is banished. In a desperate attempt to be reunited with Romeo, Juliet follows the Friar’s plot and fakes her own death.
