Stratford Festival: Romeo and Juliet

Two families of Verona, the Montagues and the Capulets, have long been embroiled in a bitter feud - but despite their parents' enmity, Romeo (a Montague) and Juliet (a Capulet) fall in love at first sight.The sympathetic Friar Laurence marries them in secret - then, when Romeo is banished for his part in a fatal street brawl, conceives a daring scheme to reunite them.

But for these two "star-crossed lovers," love and death seem fated to entwine in a tragic embrace.
