Romeo and Juliet - Union

Romeo and Juliet - Union Theatre

Currently, not one of the 4000 professional footballers in this country are homosexual. And yet for a large proportion of the country football is life, love and religion. Why is it so difficult to be male and gay in sport? And, what would the consequences of someone coming out be? Victor Harvey Productions in association with The Union Theatre present an extraordinary new interpretation of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. Set in a world where football is religion, Romeo and Juliet are two young men trying to forge careers in the beautiful game, but their love threatens to undermine the very foundation of their family’s belief and expose the tragic hypocrisy of the world they know.
