Walmer Castle 1989
The world’s greatest love story, performed by one of Britain’s most innovative theatre companies in one of the finest gardens in England.
For the last two summers, a group of leading theatre makers has come to the town of Deal on the Kent coast to create, with the local community, performances that none who saw them will ever forget. In 1987 a small theatre was transformed into a strange and magical world for A Midsummer Night’s Dream and thousands turned out onto Deal beach for Hyppolyta’s wedding, dancing into the night on the pier.
Pericles, Shakespeare’s tale of love and loss, death and reconciliation, was told last summer as it had been for hundreds of years but in a startlingly novel form in the spectacular setting of Deal Castle.
Now the magnificent grounds of Walmer Castle, official residence of Her majesty Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother, Lord Warden of the Cinque Ports, provide the backdrop for a production of Romeo and Juliet that will be one of the theatrical highlights of the summer. 11th-26th August 1989. 7.30. 14 performances only. No performance on Sunday.
