Behind the scenes with a Guildbury crew

Here’s what happens when we build a set in the theatre….

It’s 12 hours of hard work on the day by the crew and production team preceded by months of planning, designing, discussing, building, hammering, painting fuelled by endless cups of tea with the occasional glass of something restorative !



Oh Romeo video promo

Director Steffen Zschaler says: “Oh Romeo is an absolutely unique take on a classic we all know and love. By looking at what happens to the world’s ideal lovers when they’re actually married, Kishon manages to put his finger in the wound of marital problems in a way that will leave the audience weak with laughter. Anyone who’s been married for a year or more will be able to relate, so bring your partner and save on marriage counselling costs!”

Oh Romeo at The Electric Theatre 20 – 23 March, 2019


Essential Surrey 
★★★★ A rumbustious take on Shakespeare…. as always, the Guildburys have brought all their enthusiasm and dramatic skills to bear on this production. Ian McShee as the preening ghost of Shakespeare is brilliant. His dancing, self-congratulatory body language and swift changes of oral tone and register are a delight.This satire was written after Kishon had survived Nazi concentration camps in Poland and three marriages. He clearly learned much in his long life – above all, how to laugh!’

Read the full review here.

The year is 1624, 30 years after that fateful night in the vault.

Luckily, Juliet woke up just in time or Romeo would have thought she was dead and who could say what he would have done, young and neurotic as he was.

But all is well, and Romeo and Juliet have been married for almost 30 years. All is well … or is it?

They have no money, a tiny bedsit, the teenage daughter from hell and as if that wasn’t enough, Shakespeare is mad at them for ruining his perfect ending.

Where did it all go wrong?

Oh Romeo – a modern comedy by Ephraim Kishon, translated by Lucienne Hill.

An amateur production by arrangement with Josef Weinberger.
