Sharon ‘n’ Barry do ‘Romeo & Juliet’ to be streamed online

Sharon and Barry are done with baking, Joe Wicks & Netflix and have stumbled upon Sharon’s old battered school text of Romeo & Juliet in their loft. After a bit of a read and a watch of the classic, the couple’s been inspired to have a crack at the play themselves…

They’ve hacked out the boring bits, worked out playing all the parts, and the props have just arrived from Amazon!

So, join them live from their living room for this inadvertently hilarious, but surprisingly touching, take on Shakespeare’s most romantic story.

Sharon ‘n’ Barry do ‘Romeo & Juliet’, a new everyday comedy from Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch is to be performed on Zoom from 25 February – 6 March 2021.

Starring David Nellist (BBC One’s Sherlock) and Joanne Seymour (Eastenders), with Jessica Rothon and Jack Scannell-Wood, from Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch’s QYouth programme, alternating as Sharon and Barry’s niece/nephew.

The 75 minute play will be performed live online via a private link, directed by Douglas Rintoul. For more information and to purchase tickets visit queens-theatre.co.uk .
