When worlds collide and hate divides, what will it finally take to bury this strife?
Born enemies find themselves in the same place at the same time, with only 6 weeks to change their fate. Fuelled by love, inherited hatred and now questioning all they know, a pair of star-cross’d lovers will change the course of history as we know it.
The classic love story, re-imagined and retold by a young ensemble experiencing the summer of their lives; brought to you this August by the ADP 2021 Company at Hackney Empire.
The Artist Development Programme (ADP) is a two-week summer programme; in just ten days a company of young artists and creatives aged 14 – 19 years old and mentored by industry professionals, will create and present a sensational new piece of musical theatre, which if you with patient ears attend, what here shall miss, their toil shall strive to mend.
