“My only love sprung from my only hate!”
What if your first true love was someone you’d been told to hate? Ripped apart by the bitter division of their parents, two young people will risk everything to be together.
The most famous story of love at first sight explodes with intense passion and an irresistible desire for change. Will this spark a revolution, or will division continue to tear through the generations?
"a fresh, fleet, blade-sharp revival" (The Telegraph ★★★★)
"...two hugely appealing performances from Karen Fishwick and Bally Gill as the star-crossed lovers. Together they convey the blinkered giddiness of the young couple’s infatuation, the arrow-slit of adolescence in which tomorrow morning seems an age away and no adult can possibly understand the depth of your pain." (The Stage ★★★★)
"...strong performances in Erica Whyman’s swift production" (The Guardian ★★★)
