This is the most famous of all Shakespeare’s plays – a story of young love.

What’s in a name? Does it really matter if you are called Montague or Capulet? When Romeo, son of Lord Montague, falls in love with the most beautiful girl he’s ever seen, he finds that it does matter. It makes all the difference in the world, because both families hate each other.

For a time, Romeo and Juliet manage to keep their love secret. But when Romeo is sent away from Verona, hope begins to die.

Can any of their friends help the young lovers to be together for ever?
