Theatre Review: The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet – Shakespeare By The Bay (performances until April 23, 2017)

Set among the beautiful surrounds of Robertson Park in Watsons Bay, Sydney, Shakespeare By The Bay presents The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet. In partnership with Bard on the Beach, Watsons Bay Hotel and the Woollahra Council, Romeo and Juliet plays out against an ocean backdrop, with the water lapping gently against the dock as bats screech overhead.

Written by Jeffrey Archer, The Accused is an edge-of-your-seat courtroom drama in which the audience are the jury.

Written by Marc Camoletti and directed by Stephen Snars, Boeing Boeing tells the tale of Bernard (Paul Sztelma), a French architect living in Paris and juggling relationships with three flight attendants.

It’s all about the time table you see – so long as the time table doesn’t change too much it all runs smoothly – and of course you must choose women from different airlines....
