Bedford School, Bedford Girls’ School and Mark Rutherford School present a bold re-imagining of Shakespeare’s iconic tale. Set in a fictional, post-apocalyptic war-ravaged 1985, the darker themes of this classic text are brought to the fore as the masked balls of a bygone era are supplanted by the neon lights and savage hedonism of an industrial rave scene. Tensions run high as skirmishes break out between two warring families in a world where greed, hatred and political feuds prevail on every street corner. In such a world, the most unlikely of romances blossoms between two young lovers.
