A Tender Thing

Ben Power

Nick Hern Books

“A wonderfully crafted reworking...extraordinary” –


“Incredibly effective, the language made fresh, its nerve endings exposed.” –The Stage


“Wonderful and deeply astonishingly powerful play.” –Express & Star


“Power's ingenious reorganization pays off handsomely...what did Shakespeare know?” –The Guardian


Another Romeo and another Juliet in a strikingly different love story.


Ben Power weaves the text of Romeo and Juliet into a provocative new tale of love and sacrifice. Re-imagining Shakespeare's story, A Tender Thing is an elegiac yet ultimately hopeful account of the human capacity for love.


Shakespeare's timeless poetry provides the backdrop for this delicate and moving account of old age, memory and the demands we make of those we love. When a married couple discover that their lifetime together is drawing to a close, they realize they cannot contemplate being apart.
