The Other One

The Metropolitan, 2 Lapwing Lane, Manchester , M20 2WS

The time has come for Rosalina Capuleti to finally divulge the 'true' version of events and share her involvement in one of the most famous love stories ever told.

In this solo show, Rosalina will take the audience on a journey of struggle and self acceptance, from Romeo falling for her and Juliet sabotaging the whole thing, to how she has survived her true love’s death and the tragedy that shook the very foundations of Verona.
