Robbie O, a typical tracksuit wearing Oldham lad, and Judy, a beautiful Bengali student of Oldham College, come from very different backgrounds and live very different lives. When the star-crossed pair meet and fall in love, their relationship is faced with conflict from all sides.
The traditional version of Romeo and Juliet ends in inevitable tragedy – but in Oldham we do things differently. Prepare for a few surprises thanks to the Oldham Theatre Workshop, Delph Brass Band, a variety of dance companies, a sprinkle of magic and a whole lotta love.
Don’t miss this summer extravaganza which celebrates the town’s kaleidoscope of cultures and unites diverse groups and organisations under one umbrella, although we hope that brollies won’t be needed in the predicted blazing July heat of 2012.
Star-Cross’d is performed promenade style, moving around Oldham’s beautiful park. So pack a picnic, some comfortable shoes and a plastic mac (just in case), and join us for what promises to be the outdoor event of the year.
