On Saturday, Romeo and Juliet was being performed at The Globe, just down the road from London Bridge and Borough Market. Shakespeare’s language can be a struggle, keeping up with the words and devices. Watching from above, however, whilst Romeo and Juliet professed their anguish and love in the Balcony scene, what I really noticed was the raptness of the audience. They surrounded Romeo – that’s him with the face paint, on a ladder below on the left. People were just looking and listening so intently, carried away by the words and their message of love. It was magical.
