Bard news as flakes take on Shakespeare: Globe Theatre gives audience trigger warnings over 'upsetting' Romeo and Juliet - and even provides a Samaritans helpline number for after the show

London's Globe Theatre has come under fire for giving audience members trigger warnings about 'upsetting' themes in Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet - and even providing a number for the Samaritans for after the show.

The Globe - which is on the site of the Bard's original playhouse - alerts the audience before performances that suicide, drug use and fake blood feature in a production of the tragedy running from June to October.

Theatre staff even provide audience members with a Samaritans helpline number and the details of mental health charity the Listening Place in case they need emotional support after watching the play.
