Lawrence Mulligan as Friar Laurence. Picture by Elenor Gill

In a comeback to the stage Lawrence Mulligan plays Friar Laurence in Unity Theatre’s production of Shakespeare’s tragic romance Romeo and Juliet.

The friar is a kind character who helps the young lovers marry in secret. After Romeo is banished from Verona he tries to help the two lovers get back together using a potion to fake Juliet’s death.

How the story plays out you will have to see for yourself from tomorrow night when the Norman Maclean-directed show opens.
