Romeo & Juliet at Blaise Castle, Bristol

Romeo & Juliet 2011

GB Theatre Company are delighted to be performing William Shakespeare's romantic tragedy Romeo & Juliet in the Blaise Castle Estate Dairy Gardens. Starring Gabriel Thomson (BBC1's My Family) and introducing Lucy Wray, with a cast of the finest professional actors.

Verona, a city torn apart by an endless struggle between two feuding families, is left seeking salvation. Amongst a brutality beyond memory, grows a love beyond existence. The play deals with love conquering hate. The two lovers are surrounded by an anger and aggression that has lost all reason. Juliet and Romeo’s love for one another proves stronger than this loathing. It is the catalyst for the laying down of arms, and leads both households towards a new era of tolerance.

Blaise Castle theatre area

Blaise Castle
Blaise Castle is an 18th century mansion house and estate near Henbury in Bristol (formerly in Gloucestershire), England. Blaise Castle was immortalised by being described as "the finest place in England" in Jane Austen's novel Northanger Abbey. The architect was Robert Mylne and the date of building 1766; it is now believed that the design and the choice of the Gothic castle style may have had political connotations. Although referred to as a folly, it was inhabited well into the 20th century with sumptuous internal decoration.
