The friar proposes a plan: Juliet must consent to marry Paris; then, on the night before the wedding, she must drink a sleeping potion that will make her appear to be dead. Juliet will be laid to rest in the Capulet tomb, and the friar will send word to Romeo in Mantua to help him retrieve her when she wakes up. 

Only It doesn’t work. 
Tormented by his grief Friar Lawrence recounts the tragedy. A warning to adults about the power and beauty of young love. Candlelit Romeo and Juliet bring the story hauntingly to life. 
Imagination exploding in the darkness. Candlelit use poetry, soundscapes, shadow and movement to bring their productions to life. 
“Adapted by Bart Lee, who also directs, the production is an inspiration for modern playwrights in preserving the sensitivity and subject matter of such a classical piece” The Stage
