Lost Dog’s new show reveals the real story of Romeo and Juliet. It turns out they didn’t die in a tragic misunderstanding, they grew up and lived happily ever after. Well they lived at least. Now they are 40ish, at least one of them is in the grips of a mid-life crisis, they feel constantly mocked by their teenage selves and haunted by the pressuresof 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 stunning duet takes on our cultural obsession with youth and our struggle with how things are supposed to be. A humorous and heartfelt investigation into love, loss and longevity.
“Ben Duke’s take is no straightforward adaptation. He scrubs things out, scribbles in the margins, blurs art and life until the two are almost indistinguishable...it’s all the more stunning for it.” Exeunt
