ROMEO & JULIET – Mosaica@The Chocolate Factory

Shakespeare meets Skins in this contemporary, urban rendering of Romeo and Juliet. Staged at the heart of what was once a disused industrial Chocolate Factory, now home to a hub of creative talent, Mosaica's epic courtyard space becomes the 'Verona council estate'. The youth are skateboarders, freerunners, dope smokers and aspiring artistes all caught up in the violence of gang warfare. Fusing movement, music and art with Shakespeare's traditional verse, this edgy production breathes modern energy into a timeless tale.

MokitaGrit Productions continue to produce a huge variety of work. The last nine months have seen them produce a sell out four week run of TMA Award winning Once Upon A Time At The Adelphi (The Union Theatre), and prior to this the critically acclaimed productions of both A Christmas Carol (Kings Head) and the new writing concept piece Pages:Promised Land (The Union Theatre)

The cast includes the well known faces of Ben Freeman (EMMERDALE and GRANGE HILL) and Jennifer Biddall (HOLLYOAKS) in the parts of Prince Escalus and Lady Capulet respectively, as well as the exciting young pairing of Kyle McPhail (MOTHER COURAGE AND HER CHILDREN, National Theatre) and Esther Smith (THE AUTHOR, Royal Court Theatre) in the title roles.

Brenda Edwards MBE (Artistic Director and Producer of Hip Festival) joins the production as movement director, which combined with the Free-running from TEAM INVISION, promises to add a unique physical dimension as the tragedy unravels.
