“Romeo, doff thy name!”
Three performers took to their windows – and, carefully, the street, – to add a Shakespearean twist to lockdown in South End Green.
Onlookers in NW3 were treated to a cheerful performance from the actors, who all adhered to social distancing rules, on Sunday morning.
Ruth Gibson, a noted theatre actress who has also contributed to voiceovers, plays Juliet in her window. She told this newspaper: “It was just a bit of fun that’s gone crazy!”
She had shared the video on Twitter initially with the caption: “This is how we do #lockdown in NW3. Entertaining the neighbours (all audience members must be 2m apart).”

An audience of passers-by who were lucky enough to take a daily walk at just the right time burst into applause when Ruth, Ché and Adolfo finished.
