Lost Dog’s new show reveals the real story of Romeo and Juliet.
They didn’t die in a tragic misunderstanding but instead grew up and lived happily ever after.
Well at least they lived.
Now they’re 40ish, at least one of them is in the grips of a midlife crisis, they feel constantly mocked by their teenage selves and haunted by the pressures of being the poster couple for romantic love.
They have decided to confront their current struggles by putting on a performance – about themselves. Their therapist told them it was a terrible idea.
With Lost Dog’s blend of dance theatre and comedy this humorous and heartfelt show takes on our cultural obsession with youth and our inevitable issues with longevity.
Lost Dog are delighted to be offering an audio described version of the performance on Wednesday the 28th February at The Place, London. The audio description will be delivered by Lost Dog’s original cofounder Raquel Meseguer who brings an intimate knowledge of the Company’s creative process. There will be a touch tour before this show starting at 6.30pm. You can find the audio flier here: vimeo.com/253431981
