Two households, both alike in dignity are at war on the streets of fair Verona and there is just one question - Are you a Capulet or a Montague?

Romeo and Juliet wish to elope, but as the feud between their families boils over it’s going to take a potion or two to halt the bloodshed and allow love to conquer all.

Luckily, Friar Laurence is at hand with an osiers basket of herbs and directions to the nearest apothecary. But which plants are pleasant and which are poison?!

Based on Shakespeare’s ‘Romeo and Juliet’. Experience the world’s most famous love story through Studio Cultivate Play Green’s unique blend of story-telling and outdoor exploration.

You will learn all about Shakespearean themes of apothecary, potions & poisons, medicines and maladies as a springboard for exploring the Garden.
