From Antic Disposition:
“Located in the secluded heart of London’s legal quarter between Fleet Street and the River Thames, Temple Church was built by the Knights Templar in the 12th-century and is one of London’s most beautiful and historic buildings. Romeo and Juliet will be performed in the unique circular setting of the ‘Round’, the oldest part of the Church, consecrated in 1185. The production offers a rare opportunity to visit the building and explore the quiet cobbled lanes, courtyards and gardens of this little-known area of the city. In the scorching heat of summer, the streets of Verona simmer with tension. Two rival families are fighting an undeclared war.
With emotions running high, Verona is a powder keg of barely suppressed violence. And when love strikes the houses of Montague and Capulet, it sparks a chain of events that will blow the city apart…
Following our recent critically acclaimed, sell-out productions of The Tempest, A Midsummer Night’s Dream and A Christmas Carol in Middle Temple Hall, Antic Disposition will be making the short journey to the ancient Temple Church in central London for our next production, Romeo and Juliet.”
