Romeo and Juliet .. deaf acting roles

Today Deaf-uk-Jobs advertised the following exciting opportunity:

D/deaf actors and actresses required for exciting new production of William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. 

London-based site-specific company Bard Unbound is auditioning for a new production of Romeo & Juliet performing at The Rose, Bankside, London, 5th – 30th June. Rehearsals will be held mainly in the Tower Hill area evenings and weekends through May. 

We are currently seeking experienced D/deaf actors and actresses, fluent in BSL, and with experience of Shakespeare – for the following roles: 

Romeo, Juliet, Nurse 

Please note we are also interested in meeting with hearing actors and actresses, who hold a Level 2 (or above) certificate in BSL 

Please email cv’s to Lara on with a short paragraph describing your relevant experience and availability. Audition slots are available by appointment evenings and weekends from 23rd April. Please note this project is a profitshare production.


For those people interested in watching Shakespeare plays rather than acting the roles remember Shakespeare in BSL Labour’s Love Lost this May.
