Go wisely and slowly. Those who rush stumble and fall.

by William Shakespeare
Directed by Aaron Parsons
Designed by Aldo Vázquez

Caught in the middle of a war between two feuding families, a pair of young lovers take shelter from a fractured world and hold each other close.

They meet, they talk, they flirt, they touch. They fall in love. And then, in the blink of an eye, everything changes.

Shakespeare’s enduring tale of desire, conflict and loss continues to enthral audiences around the world.

As soon as I visited the School, I fell in love with the place. Perhaps it sounds a bit irrational, but sometimes you get a vibe - and you just know! BOVTS gave me all the tools I needed to prepare for a career as an actor. Sahir Mehta, MA Professional Acting, 2018
