Directed by acclaimed theatre director Jamie Lloyd, this incredible remake of Shakespeare's timeless tale will play to audiences at The Duke of York’s Theatre during its three-month run. The actor portraying Juliet is yet to be announced.

The Duke of York’s Theatre opened in 1892, then named the Trafalgar Square Theatre, and was renamed to its current name in 1895 to honour the future King George V.

Over the years, the theatre has housed illustrious productions such as King Lear and played host to many famous names including Sir Ian McKellen, Orlando Bloom, Michael Gambon and Jeremy Irons.
