These London Neighbours Have Been Performing ‘Romeo And Juliet’ For Their Street

Alex Landon Alex Landon - Editor

Romeo & Juliet

The lockdown-inspired version of Romeo and Juliet is, well, inspired.

What light through yonder window breaks? Well, if you happen to live on one north London street, it’s probably your neighbours performing a bit of Shakespeare. Footage has emerged on Twitter of several neighbours reciting scenes from Romeo and Juliet, and it’s pretty stirring stuff. Give it a watch! (Featured image: Sasha Frost, via Twitter)

The iconic balcony scene (an appropriate choice, given that this is Shakespeare performed from the windows) is captured on camera, and the big round of applause at the end indicates it was a performance welcomed by all. There’s even a musical accompaniment, so you know they’ve really gone all out for this! Hey, given the speed with which modern events are woven into modern Shakespeare productions, we’re probably only a season away from The Globe trying this…

Speaking of The Globe, they’re streaming some of their best-loved Shakespeare plays for free right now.
