Beset by one of the wettest weeks June has seen, finally a performance of Romeo and Juliet went ahead in the park, albeit undercover.
It's funny how a re-staging can add a heightened vibrancy and sense of adventure, as this is what the five-strong cast managed to achieve. The Brave New World theme of this year's selected Shakespeare plays has come into its own, although it's a level of stress the young performers – and beleaguered crew – could probably have lived without.
