Diss delights in Romeo and Juliet recital beside the Mere

‘For never was a story of more woe than this of Juliet and her Romeo’ – and this was certainly the case during an open-air production of the classic Shakespeare play beside the Mere in Diss at the weekend.

Three actors from the HandleBards group performed the show as part of the Corn Hall’s continuing efforts to reintroduce live theatre to the town.

Tom Dixon, co-artistic director for the group, said: “It went very well and I think everyone was excited to come back to some live theatre and events in a safe way.

“The ducks didn’t stop quacking but that didn’t impede anyone’s enjoyment of the event.”

Fellow director Paul Moss added: “While these shows aren’t our usual four-hander cycle-powered offer, they are as irreverent, charming and family-friendly as always.”

Romeo and Juliet is currently touring around the UK until the end of September.
