New twist on Shakespeare

Shakespeare as you’ve never seen it before comes to Wolverhampton Grand Theatre in July as groundbreaking new touring productions of ‘Romeo and Juliet’, with music by Mumford and Sons and Hozier, and ‘Twelfth Night’ featuring the music of Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong grace the stage. Directed by the Watermill Theatre’s new artistic director Paul Hart, the productions offer a contemporary feel by challenging the way live music is used alongside text and to investigate new responses to Shakespeare’s work. Romeo and Juliet: Wednesday 12 July at 2.30pm & 7.30pm. Twelfth Night: Thursday 13 & Friday 14 July at 7.30pm. Tickets £12.50 from 01902 429212 or online at
