About this event

An award-winning solo show, laced with the words of Shakespeare.

A University Office, 1962: homosexuality is illegal. Junior lecturer, William O’Halloran, has been dismissed from his position. His secret is out. As he packs up his beloved belongings, William recalls the defining events that led him to this moment. Time is ticking away. His wife Lola is due to arrive any minute. And the curtain will soon rise on the student union production of Romeo and Juliet. But Shakespeare’s tale of star-crossed lovers isn’t the only forbidden love story on campus. And the leading man knows this all too well…

Producer/Writer/Performer Mark Salvestro
Director/Dramaturg Phoebe Anne Taylor & Sarah Hallam
