Romeo and Juliet

by William Shakespeare

Basking in the warm sunshine of some of Shakespeare’s brightest love poetry, hopeful young lives are thrust into a single tomb. In a mood of enforced secrecy and often with the best intentions, the older generation teaches the younger how misadventure, ancient quarrels and family pride can abort and finally bury the most joyous of beginnings, the best of love stories.
