The Kenneth Branagh Theatre Company Live cinema season continues with a new vision of Shakespeare’s heartbreaking tale of forbidden love. Branagh and his creative team present a modern passionate version of the classic tragedy.
A longstanding feud between Verona’s Montague and Capulet families brings about devastating consequences for two young lovers caught in the conflict.
Kenneth Branagh co-directs with Rob Ashford, reuniting with the stars of his celebrated film of Cinderella, Richard Madden (Game of Thrones) and Lily James (Downton Abbey), as Romeo and Juliet. Also featuring Sir Derek Jacobi as Mercutio and Meera Syal as The Nurse.
Romeo and Juliet will be screened in black and white.
The Englert Theatre presents this event as part of the University of Iowa Libraries’ SHAKESPEARE AT IOWA, a statewide celebration marking the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death.
