Romeo and Juliet - Rubbish Shakespeare Co



Visit date:


Parking nearby not too difficult because it was a Sunday and I have a disabled parking badge and streets not too busy as show mid-morning. Slightly confusing to find the exact venue eg. Pleasance Above or Below as signposts not very clear, and it would help to put a sign where the actual queue is, as my spatial awareness is reduced so finding the exact place to stand is tricky. However, staff really approachable and helpful if you need to be accommodated to queue in a quieter place or go in first for sensory reasons. Actual show was very funny and entertaining. The actors were good at interacting with the audience in a friendly way. The show was just the right length at one hour, and they started very promptly which was good as I find waiting challenging because of the noise of the audience around me. Great fun, I would go back to the venue and the show.

Transport & Parking


Easy to park with disabled badge on a Sunday morning near the venue, other times in the Festival a lot more challenging.



Fine for me as I can manage stairs, not sure if there was ramp or lift for those who need them.



I used the general toilet.



Staff very friendly and helpful if adaptations needed.

Anything else you wish to tell us?

I have autism so adaptations for me are generally about the sensory and spatial environment. Sometimes getting to the show is more difficult than the actual show so it depends on venue and time of day on how manageable that is for me.
