The thing about Romeo and Juliet ‚Äď but you know this, Grasshopper ‚Äď is that it isn‚Äôt a love story ‚Äď not at all, not even a little bit. It is rather a story of desperation, ego and self-regard. Juliet is a thirteen-year-old girl who has just been given the alarming news that she will be forced to marry a man she‚Äôs never met.

Simon Godwin’s much-hyped version of Romeo & Juliet at the National Theatre was originally slated for summer 2020. Not to be outdone by the pandemic, a new version was filmed in just seventeen days on a closed set in the Lyttleton theatre and is now being broadcast on Sky Arts. Combining elements of both stage and screen, this is a unique and magical version of Shakespeare’s iconic play.

To take a play as epic in scale as Coriolanus and find a natural home within the intimacy of London's Donmar Warehouse take a skill and lightness of touch that is not only rare but all so often missed. Director Josie Rouke has sliced through a lot of the sound and most of the fury to get to the very heart of Shakespeare's tragedy.

Caryl Churchill returns with a new quartet of shorts a?' and, at 81, she's still one of the most daring, formally inventive and linguistically dexterous playwrights working today. There's never any sense that her work could slide into another medium; it requires theatre's abstract arena, its live-wire liveness, the crucial space for an audience to bring their own readings, and the very act of storytelling unfolding.
