Performance Details - Romeo and Juliet
Branagh/Burnett, Kenneth Branagh Ltd, August 1986
"Kate Burnett's set consists of the familiar scaffolding, a flight of steps on each side and a gap in the middle of the upper walkway...In her Jane Wyman hairdo and fifties dress, Samantha Bond's Juliet provides an odd contrast with the men in their stylised costumes of dyed blouses and black trousers over boots." Martin Hoyle, Financial Times 15.8.86
