Shakespeare - Romeo and Juliet

Two families, the Montagues and the Capulets, hate each other so much that they fight on the street whenever they meet. One of these families, the Capulets, organises a big party so that they can introduce their daughter Juliet to a rich nobleman, Count Paris, who has asked to marry her. Juliet is nearly 14, and her parents are keen for her to marry soon. Romeo is the son of the Montague family, and is also about 14. Romeo and his friends decide that it would be exciting to go to the Capulets’ party too. That night, at the party, Romeo meets Juliet, and they fall in love at first sight.

Juliet’s cousin, Tybalt, gets angry very easily. Meanwhile, the Capulets decide that Juliet must marry Count Paris immediately. When the guests arrive for Juliet’s wedding the next day, Juliet’s lifeless body is discovered. When the Capulets and Montagues discover both their children dead, they are united in their sadness.
