Shakespeare's celebrated tragedy made accessible as drama for younger listeners whilst remaining true to the Bard's verse and vocabulary. What could be worse than falling in love with your enemy? Romeo Montague thinks he's in love until he meets Juliet Capulet. With her, he discovers what true love really feels like. But their two families are bitter rivals, and no one must know about their secret passion. When Romeo kills Juliet's cousin in a brawl, their hopes of happiness seem doomed. Can Friar Laurence use their love to reconcile the two families, or will his plans bring further tragedy?

    " Well, I just finished reading this in freshman English class and it's obviously a masterpiece. I just don't believe in the concept of two people falling in love, getting married and dying all within a few days. Other than that, this is definitely one of my favorite love stories. "

    " I like the old-fashioned language. But seriously. The both of them are fools. what the heck are they doing? he is killing himself on top of a girl, he barely knows. he just met her a few days ago.. oh jeez.. love sucks and then you die! "

    " In my eyes, this is a cliche drama. True, in Shakespeare's day, it was considered dramatic, but nowadays, everyone knows about the tragic love story of Romeo and Juliet. The language is beautiful, but I don't believe it is true love they are feeling. I think they are feeling lust. I love Shakespeare, but I don't really enjoy this tale of two star-crossed lovers. "
