LOVE IS NEVER FAIR
Falling headlong in love, two teenagers defy the long-simmering hatred between their families. But daring to love one’s enemy comes with a terrible cost, as the needless sacrifice of young lives brings this heartbreaking story to its tragic conclusion.
In this Stratford Festival production of Shakespeare’s 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 - but for these two “star-crossed lovers,” love and death seem fated to entwine in a tragic embrace.
