"For never was there a story of more woe than this of Juliet and her Romeo," William Shakespeare wrote more than four centuries ago. All this time later, the Bard's words still hold up. The ultimate star-cross'd tale of romantic tragedy, Romeo and Juliet just keeps resonating with audiences — whether hitting the big screen with Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes in the 90s, or taking over La Boite between Saturday, May 25 and Saturday, June 14.

If you've seen the former, you'll want to see the latter. This stage production is another reimagined affair, this time stripping back the narrative, removing some of the repetition and honing in on the core of the work. La Boite's Romeo and Juliet is also a collaboration with the theatre and the next generation of young actors studying at Queensland University of Technology. Watch these up-and-comers bring this drama to life in a streamlined version staged in the round.

There'll be warring families, obviously. There'll be two teenagers trying to follow their hearts, too — and forget that their names are Montague and Capulet. And, there'll be the most memorable three-day love story in history, blossoming anew in Kelvin Grove.
