批評家のレビュー

"Wonderful performances pepper this intriguing contemporary twist on Romeo and Juliet.... The full-cast delivers Shakespeare's words and emotions as convincingly as they deliver their off-stage personae.... In the smaller, more intimate, scenes, both plot and characters come alive." (AudioFile)

Reviews from Audible members:

"Brilliant - but not how you'd expect it! This isn't quite how I expected it - a retelling of Romeo and Juliet, with Jude instead of Juliet. It's better. In it, a theatrical group put on a performance of Romeo and Juliet, but due to a lack of good actresses, 'Jude' must play Juliet. I've been captivated by it, and have listened to it three times. I really would recommend it." - Alex

"Outstanding!!! I thought I could listen to this over a few days. Day 1 and I was on episode 11. Truly gripping, brilliantly acted. Amazing. Can't praise enough." - Jordan Campbell

"Brilliant!!! Loved this story so much... gripped from start to finish. Funny, witty scary & charming." - R Wardle

"Wow. Honestly was not expecting this to be as good as it was. Couldn't stop listening, and finished it all in one day. Just when you think the story can't escalate any further, it takes you along another twist. Great performances from everyone involved." - Anastasia

"Sad it had to end. Story was so gripping I missed my bus stop. Owen Teale's voice is gorgeous." - Victoria H

“Yes, well I didn't believe the reviews. I must have close to 300 audiobooks from Audible and most are well produced, the stories are between quite good and very good. This is the funniest, most interesting book and production I have from Audible." - Caz in Maspalomas

"One of the best! Absolutely loved this version of Romeo and Juliet, I felt I was watching and living it whilst I listened. In fact got frustrated by those around me when I had to pause and attend to meals, work children etc. Highly recommended." - Kenzo

"Shakespeare himself would cry listening to this. The most incredible listen for ages. At times I couldn't tell when it was Shakespeare's original work and when it was the modern fiction. The performances, of which there are many and on so many different levels, are amazing and draw you in to it." - Mark

"Just brilliant... What can I say about this amazing piece of audio art? The performances are spectacular, utterly involving, believable and heart-wrenching. It's written with beauty and insight, a perfect update to a classic play. The themes of identity and acceptance are handled with intelligence. It's the best thing I have listened to from Audible" - Louise Gardener

あらすじ・解説

A gritty reimagining of Shakespeare's famous tragedy, this brand new modern-day audiobook adaptation of William Shakespeare's classic love story is full of passion, emotion, scandal, disillusionment and family fallout.

An amateur dramatics company in a suburban corner of nowhere. Two men with very different lives, brought together when cast in the roles of Romeo and Juliet - 'as Shakespeare would have it', in the words of their eccentric and enigmatic director. Though the elicit romance doesn’t only play out on the stage.

Against the odds, our heroes struggle to keep hold of each other and to keep a handle on real life. As the pressures, threats and expectations of their worlds draw in, per Shakespeare's original, the pithy banter from the first few scenes evaporates away to reveal a very real and present danger... and even tragedy.

Starring Owen Teale (Game of Thrones), Matthew Tennyson (Pride), Nick Moran (Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels) and Ricky Norwood (EastEnders), Romeo and Jude contains strong language and adult themes.

Absolutely Outstanding!

Heavens when Audible get it right they are capable of producing genuinely outstanding audio drama! This is a distance away from my normal reading but I was captivated from almost the start to the end. I almost didn't go near this. After all Romeo and Juliet has been done to death. Step forward though Romeo and Jude to prove me completely wrong on that point.

An amateur group of thespians with more enthusiasm than talent takes the bold step of hiring a professional director for the first time to guide them through Shakespeare's tragic romance. The director turns out to be rather more than they bargained for and one or two of the actors end up with a lot more than they thought they would get out of the experience. Just like the original it has family feuds, betrayals and a defining theme of how destructive prejudice can be not just to those on the receiving end but also to those dishing it out.

The story is great and the cast does it complete justice with quite unrestrained performances, there is no mere reading here it is all quality acting. I didn't think that this would be one I'd rave about but it is, in its own way one of the best things available on Audible. This is the kind of quality drama that is going to send tremors through the more traditional broadcasting and publishing houses as they try to figure out how to compete!

Love is love is love!

Emotional doesn't even begin to cover how I feel, what a story, even knowing the basis of this tale, the twists and turns pulled at my heart, so compelling! The relationship felt so real, it literally took my breath away in places!

Don’t be put off by over acting early on

I almost stopped listening to this in the first chapter as it seemed very cheesy and greatly overacted by some characters. I’m so pleased I didn’t though. I had no idea what this story was about and to say it wasn’t what I expected would be an understatement! This is definitely not for the faint hearted and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

An Exceptional Listen!

I was unsure what this story would say, and I was somewhat sceptical about it. How wrong I was! The many levels in this tale were many and very telling. The hold and expections of others and what they want for us - are endless and very claustrophobic . Please read thid with an open mind there are echoes there for all of us to hear.

Beautifully reimagined

A very dark and creative reimagining of a timeless story.

There was clearly a great deal of chemistry between the two leads, and they did complete justice to the poetic Shakespearean writing which I loved listening to.

However, I struggled to empathise with Jude - who at times came across very aloof and arrogant, to such an extent that I started to question how exactly he classified as "beautiful" beyond his looks. This in turn led me to question the authenticity of his feelings; was he genuinely in love, or was Raymond just another "conquest"? It was difficult to tell, even towards the end.

Besides this, the production was an absolute pleasure to listen to with endless tension and drama that kept me engaged through to the conclusion. Beautiful writing that displayed a tender appreciation for Shakespeare. My favourite character was undoubtedly Miranda, whose performance was so passionate I had to share some of her quotes on social media.
