The Watermill Theatre



Phillip Tull

"A fresh and richly coloured take on a timeless classic"

- The Stage ****


"Designer Katie Lias transforms The Watermill into Capulet's, a disreputable, stick-floored bar with audience seating on four sides, moodily lit by Tom White, setting, the tone for the evening"

-WhatsOnStage ****


"It's all most atmospheric - indeed, the only thing designer Katie Lias isn't able to include is the trademark smell of stale beer mixed with industrial strength disinfectant"

- The Oxford Times ****


"This production is further proof that The Watermill puts creativity first...the effort put in to this interpretation of Romeo and Juliet is commendable"

- The Reviews Hub ***


"A fresh and vivacious interpretation...filled with magic moments and will certainly be a hit"

- British Theatre Guide
