Watch Romeo and Juliet for free, our Playing Shakespeare with Deutsche Bank production created especially for young people, filmed from Shakespeare’s most famous stage, the Globe Theatre. In return for these free streams, we appreciate any voluntary donations at this time. Your support is critical for our future.
About the story
A violent street brawl between their rival families is the prelude to Romeo’s first encounter with Juliet. Despite this, and the fact that Juliet has been promised to another man in marriage, they fall in love. But any plans for their future happiness are cruelly destroyed by renewed violence between the two families – and while the adults remain almost comically preoccupied with their own affairs, among their children a hidden tragedy begins to unfold.
About the production
Packed with love, family feuds and a dose of comedy, Romeo and Juliet is a full-scale, fast-paced 90 minute performance (with no interval) in the Globe Theatre designed to introduce students and families to Shakespeare.

Playing Shakespeare with Deutsche Bank
The perfect way to introduce young people to Shakespeare, our Playing Shakespeare with Deutsche Bank productions are designed to break down walls to cultural access and empower teenagers to develop their creative curiosity.
Playing Shakespeare with Deutsche Bank is our flagship project for schools in London and Birmingham, with 20,000 free tickets given to students for a full-scale Shakespeare production created specifically for young people. Over the past ten years we’ve created a wealth of teaching resources for key curriculum Shakespeare plays including Romeo and Juliet, Othello, Macbeth and A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
Supported by Deutsche Bank as part of Born to Be, its youth engagement programme which is committed to helping young people to reach their full potential.
Our doors are temporarily closed but our hearts and minds are open.
