How many different interpretations have there been of Big Willie Shakespeare’s rather fine work? Let us count the ways…

Having proven instantly popular when it debuted back in the 1590s, Romeo And Juliet is undoubtedly one of the most popular love stories ever told.

Which may explain why it has been on stage and screen pretty much constantly since its 16th century debut.

And now, Greystones new youth theatre, Making Waves, are about to unleash local lad Ciarán Coogan’s new interpretation, entitled Juliet Of Verona.

Ruben Sweeney and Katie Lacey-Curtis will take on the iconic roles, whilst also stepping onto The Whale stage for this world premiere are Ciara Shortt, Alanah Bradshaw, Conor Doyle, Michael Clarke, Sarah Stack, Aleisha Archer and Tadhg Kavanagh.

Like love itself, Romeo & Juliet comes in all shapes and sizes, and Greystones is about to deliver the very latest. Bring a hanky. And your secret crush.
