Play - Shakespeare, Wed 24 Jul - Sat 3 Aug 2019




Join EODS at Eastbourne's beautiful Italian Gardens overlooking the Holywell & The English Channel for their annual open air Shakespeare production. The chosen play for Summer 2019 is one of Sheakepeare's most loved, Romeo & Juliet.

Romeo and Juliet has been interpreted in numerous ways over the years – from authentic doublet and hose productions to Bas Luhrmann’s hip modern, gun-toting movie version. For EODS’ production this summer, director David Foster will take a more traditional approach – but with a twist – presenting a ‘Post Modern Renaissance’ interpretation.

The themes presented in the play of warring families, forbidden love and desperate solutions are still as relevant today as they were in Elizabethan times. All the passion, anger and heartbreak will be displayed by the talented, enthusiastic cast as this sad tale of two star-cross’d lovers plays out in the Italian Gardens this July.

The production will of course include all the features that Eastbourne's audiences have come to love including freshly made homemade cakes, hot and cold drinks including a licensed bar, undercover seating for all audience members facing an open playing area, full professional lighting rig and custom made scenery. There are also on site toilets plus well lit pathways for audience's comfort and safety.

Don't miss out on this summer highlight. Performances every evening at 7.30pm from Wednesday 24th July - Saturday 3rd August (Except Sunday 28th July). 2018 was a complete sell out, so early booking is strongly advised to avoid disapointment.
