About the Play 
Two young people fall headlong in love the moment they meet – but their families are bitter enemies, locked in a longstanding feud that has newly erupted into violence in the streets. Some of Shakespeare’s most gorgeous language suffuses this intensely romantic tale of stolen bliss, wrenching separation and tragic twists of fate.
