Shakespeare's quick witted summer tragedy, with Trystan Gravelle and Vanessa Kirby as the lovers, and David Tennant as the Prince. In a town full of hatred, where the streets ring with the Capulet Montague feud, and swords are too easily drawn, Romeo and Juliet find each other, and love, and never let go.
Part of Radio 3's celebration of the 450th anniversary of Shakespeare's birth. Following a new production of Antony and Cleopatra, Shakespeare's epic tale of mature love, this is a chance to hear his tragedy of young love, the two plays bridging the week of his birthday.
