The Bard's Best Bits of Romeo and Juliet
Romeo and Juliet - with an Oddsocks comic twist! With 3 actors playing all the parts in a 30-50 minute adaptation of the classic love story - expect nothing short of Oddsocks' usual mayhem and comedy!
Aimed at Primary through to GCSE, Oddsocks are the perfect way to entertain and educate your students - we guarantee to challenge the expectation that "Shakespeare is boring, Miss!"
Founded 28 years ago Oddsocks perform Shakespeare and classic stories in a rip-roaring pantomime style making them very accessible to a wide ranging audience and opening up a love of Shakespeare in anybody regardless of age. Oddsock’s style is irreverent but respectful to the texts, slapstick but skilful, clever but very accessible.
The production was absolutely brilliant and just what we
were hoping for! The level of energy, chaos and comedy hit
exactly the right note for the four year groups and I know the
memory of watching this production will stay with them
all far beyond their GCSE studies.
It was a real treat to see all of our students so engaged with a play text written over 400 years ago and a refreshing change to see Romeo
and Juliet interpreted as a comedy!
