Two households, both alike in dignity. One belongs to Juliet Capulet, the other to a teenage girl reading Romeo + Juliet for the first time in 2019, desperately looking for the great love story she has been promised. After exploring the relationship between girls and power in Julius Caesar and sex and power in The Maid’s Tragedy, Pocket Universe turns its attention to the power of perspective in this new adaptation of Shakespeare’s most famous work; and how, as time and humanity evolve, the classics are received today.
