The Royal Shakespeare Company returns to Blackpool’s Grand Theatre, following A Midsummer Night’s Dream (2016).

What if your first true love was someone you’d been told to hate?

The most famous story of love at first sight explodes with intense passion and an irresistible desire for change. Will this spark a revolution, or will division continue to tear through generations?
