In this play, adapted by Lorraine Haworth but still faithful to Shakespeare's original script, the ageing Romeo and Juliet are residents in 'Verona', home for the elderly. Romeo resides in Montague wing with his friends Mercutio and Benvolia, and the newly arrived Juliet is in Capulet wing. But all is not well as the residents bicker and fight, egged on by the fiery Tybalt. Meanwhile, Juliet's offspring are eager to marry her off to their rich acquaintance Paris before their inheritance slips away. This is a story of irresistible love in later life, a secret marriage and heart-breaking tragedy.
