A Tender thing

By: Ben Power
At: Bådteatret
Playing: 22nd May – 13th June 2015

Another Romeo and another Juliet in a strikingly different love story.

Imagine if Romeo and Juliet had lived and loved another 40 years.

Shakespeare’s timeless poetry provides the backdrop to this elegaic, delicate and powerfully moving account of love, old age, memories and the unbearable pain of sweetly sorrowful parting.

‘Is love a tender thing? It is too rough. Too rude, too boisterous, and it pricks like thorn’

Ben Power has taken Romeo and Juliet and re-imagined it. With Shakespeare’s words he has woven a provocative, powerful and achingly beautiful new tale of love.
