Jessie Buckley, Josh O’Connor to star in Romeo and Juliet

Rising British star Jessie Buckley and The Crown’s Josh O’Connor will play the ultimate star-crossed lovers in a new production of Romeo and Juliet at the National Theatre.

The pair will be joined by Fisayo Akinade as Mercutio in the production, which runs in the Olivier in August 2020.

No further details have been announced, but with two of the UK’s hottest young actors set to star you can bet this will sell out very fast.
