Ryan Downey is Romeo in “Romeo and Juliet” at OVO Theatre Company

Ryan Downey takes the lead in OVO’s outdoor production of “Romeo and Juliet” at the Roman Theatre of Verulamium in St Albans.


A brand-new adaptation, set on the streets of Northern Ireland’s capital in 1998, the year that the Good Friday agreement was signed. From ancient grudge break to new mutiny, a pair of star-crossed lovers take their lives.

Led with movement and live music, this is a high paced, modern take on a timeless classic, showing us that Shakespeare is as relevant today as it’s always been and that a fragile peace is only as durable as opposing sides permit.


Running from 5th June – 29th July 2023
