“Did my heart love till now? forswear it, sight!
For I ne’er saw true beauty till this night.”

Shakespeare’s tragedy of teenage passions and civil strife comes crashing across The Gate stage next spring. Romeo and Juliet, from two rival families, turn their back on their parent’s ancient feud and embark on an intense and secret love affair, that ignites within them a depth of feeling that explodes in some of the fieriest writing about love in the history of the stage. With their families at war, the lovers risk everything to be together, in a fierce and famous drama of love and revenge.
