Director Paul Stebbings explores the depths of this tragedy and its central conflict between love and death, “The play is highly stylized, masked balls and ritual violence form set pieces. We employed stylized choreography and once again commissioned a live musical score from a leading composer. While establishing a rich theatrical environment we also strived to maintain a Shakespearean style that relies on the actor's skills and audience's imagination rather than complex settings and design. ‘Romeo and Juliet’ is one of the most popular plays ever written. We aim to present it with its poetry and romance intact, while delivering a powerful, stylized drama.”

“Astonishingly inventive and wonderfully unpredictable, their visual inventiveness defies description.”  - THE SCOTSMAN, Edinburgh Festival

“TNT embodies all the qualities of British theatre.”  - SUDDEUTSCHE ZEITUNG, Munich

“Touring theatre at its best”. - SOUTH CHINA MORNING POST, Hong Kong

“Highly effective and charismatic theatre.” - VILLAGE VOICE, New York.

“The audiences were held in a vice like grip from the first moment...the company demonstrates how Shakespeare can be made relevant to the modern world.”
