Romeo and Juliet - YouTube | Thespie

A violent street brawl between their rival families is the prelude to Romeo’s first encounter with Juliet. Despite this, and the fact that Juliet has been promised to another man in marriage, they fall in love. But any plans for their future happiness are cruelly destroyed by renewed violence between the two families – and while the adults remain almost comically preoccupied with their own affairs, among their children a hidden tragedy begins to unfold. Packed with love, family feuds and a dose of comedy, this full-scale production from Playing Shakespeare and Deutsche Bank is filmed at the Globe Theatre and designed to introduce students and families to Shakespeare.
