The Greatest Love Story Comes to Bristol

Following the success of their gender reversed ‘Julius Caesar’ , Thrice Three Muses return with a new twist on the greatest love story ever told… How will the Capulets cope when their only daughter falls for the DAUGHTER of Lord Montague? A brave venture into modern society and gay culture, but above all a daring twist on a classic text, exploring lesbianism, first love, and how a parent learns to let go…

As the Bierkeller’s first venture into Classical Theatre in its opening season, and its first openly LGBT production, director Ben Hughes-Games hopes that this new twist will open up the story of the older generation – how do you cope with your child coming out as gay? Or if you think they might be? Set against a backdrop of some of Shakespeare’s most beautiful language, this up-to-date version of Romeo and Juliet is not to be missed. With experiments on the sexuality of all characters, and how sharply the young feel rejection – from friends, parents and lovers, this tragedy will ring true with gay, straight, young and old – and everything in between!

The show opens, aptly, on Valentine’s Day 2012 – and runs from the 14th-16th and 19th-23rd February. Tickets cost £8.50 in advance, £10 on the door – buy them at, or call the box office on 0117 930 4264. Doors open at 7.30pm, show starts at 8.15pm
