How would you feel, if you woke in the dark, with the one you love, to find they are somehow different?…

How would you feel, if you discovered they had a very sharp knife ?…

How would you feel, if you tried to escape, only to find that the door was locked shut?

Ask Juliet Smith…
She knows…

ROMEO JONES is no ordinary love story

It examines a teen relationship and it’s imbalance of power; how cultural notions of gender roles form beliefs and actions; and highlights coercive control, violent and non-violent tactics of domestic abuse.
Suitable for children and young people aged 13 and over this original drama contains no actual physical violence or swearing but does include verbal threats, some grabbing and pushing and images of arson. The plays lasts 35 minutes and is followed by an after-show discussion workshop with the writer and actors.
