The thing about Romeo and Juliet – but you know this, Grasshopper – is that it isn’t a love story – 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’s never met.

This showcase of six new plays is written by both emerging and established writers, who were asked to think about the mental and physical thresholds that we have all been forced to confront during this past year. Inspired by this, the results provide contrasting interpretations of this concept.
