"Love conquers all. Even death.
In the fair city of Verona, the families of Capulet and Montague have been warring for as long as anyone can remember. Nobody longer knows why. In the midst of the violence and bloodshed two young persons find each other: Romeo of the house of Montague and Juliet of the house of Capulet. Falling in love becomes their salvation - a refuge from the hard, incomprehensible reality. But a tragic misunderstanding has fatal consequences, and love is turned into unhappiness. Destiny has chosen the young lovers to reconcile the families."
The theatre recommended a lower age limit of 13 years.

Lillian Bikset, I strategi og lidenskap, humor og sorg, finner Romeo og Julie balansen (literally: In strategy and passion, humour and mourning, Romeo and Juliet finds its balance), Dagbladet 5. mars 2016:
"Blood beats and blood burns in aggression and in love. Maren E. Bjørseth's direction of Romeo and Juliet manoeuvres confidently between passions, and between comedy and tragedy. (…) This is one of the productions of Romeo and Juliet in which the names should have been mentioned in the opposite chronology. She is the mover, he is the follower.Kjersti Dalseide and Axel Gherken Bøyum both act with a mix of naive sincerity and ideological consciousness. Juliet and Romeo share their sexual awakening, that, too, expressed more markedly in her, but the bond between them isn't singularly due to the hormones that is given release for the first time. The two recognise something in one another, something they do not see in any of the others surrounding them:They have in common a scepticism against their friends' and the adults' cynicism and immovable ideas, a well-considered urge for rebellion against a conflict they both see unnecessary. That he is a Montague and she is a Capulet is more of a motivation than a hindrance."
