Performing in ‘Juliet and her Romeo’

‘Juliet and her Romeo’, currently playing at the Bristol Old Vic, is a re-imagining of the Shakespearean play that transforms the teenage lovers into octogenarian residents of a care home, and their feuding parents into the staff and offspring caring for them. Sian Phillips is playing Juliet at the tender age of 76. She joins Jane to discuss performing this iconic role.

Juliet and her Romeo at the Bristol Old Vic Juliet until 24 April
