Unmasked Theatre present Romeo and Juliet at The Hawth Studio, Crawley, on February 17, 22 and 23 (7.45pm).

A spokesperson said: “Milan, 1910s. Two ideas are growing rapidly, both worlds apart and irreconcilable to each other.

“Violence sweeps the streets of a changing city.

“On one side the capitalists join forces with the Catholic Church, presided over by Cardinal Capulet.

“On the other, the angry communists, funded by the great Montague family, grow ever more powerful.

“Violence is inevitable, love is fleeting.

“Join Unmasked as they continue to rip up the copybooks with a thoroughly unique take on the most famous love story of all time.

“Romeo and Juliet begins its run at The Hawth Theatre, Crawley, on February 17, 22 and 23, before continuing to The Rialto Theatre, Brighton on February 24 and The Hub Theatre, Haywards Heath, on March 9.

“This production is directed and adapted by Pip O’Neill and Luke Ofield (The Great Gatsby, The Trojan Women, Antony and Cleopatra).

“Unmasked Theatre is an emerging community theatre company in the South East, committed to making great literature accessible and affordable for the modern stage and providing a platform for young artists to develop, excel and thrive.”
