The most famous story of love at first sight with no happy ever after comes to Fort Lovrjenac this summer. Star-crossed lovers ripped apart by the bitter feuding of their families, risk everything to stay together.
Our festival headline production is set in 1960s Verona with the backdrop La Mala del Brenta, a Northern Italian version of the Mafia. This version of the play has a distinctly Medditeranean feel, in a period when rebellious teenagers flaunting convention and challenging authority were still very much a novelty.
Will the courage to see change spark a change or will divisions continue through generations?
Performed by the British cast, this production is supported by an international creative team.
Fort Lovrjenac, 22nd June – 5th July, every night at 9.30 pm, except 27th June
