“Two households, both alike in dignity,
in fair Verona where we lay our scene,
From ancient grudge break to new mutiny,
Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean.”
Known as a “cautionary tale” of the dangers of young love, this is a timeless love story of two teenagers who tragically fight against all odds to be together. Their families are at war with each other, creating chaos in the city of Verona. Yet even in the throes of war, these two “star cross’d lovers” fight for each other with the strength that only love can inspire and in the process dramatically change the world around them.!
