directed by Nick Philippou

A boy spies a girl in a tower. She is unapproachable. He is sick with love. Enter Celestina, a worldly-wise witch with peculiar charms. And that is where the fairytales end...

Celestina teams with the vibrancy of lowlife and high passion. More Grimm than Romeo and Juliet, it was arguably Europe's first blockbuster. Co-adapted by Max Hafler and Nick Philippou, Actors Touring Company celebrates 15 years of award-winning European classics with this stunning new version of a play as popular in Spain as Hamlet.
