Shakespeare - Romeo and Juliet

The story of Romeo and Juliet takes place in Verona in Italy. 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.

Culture - If Jane Austen characters used dating apps In light of a very important anniversary this year – 200 years since the death of Jane Austen – we had a think about how we could honour one of Britain’s most famous authors. What better way could there be to pay homage to the wittiest appraiser of Regency England’s marriage market than to think about what Jane Austen would make of love in 2017? Austen lived in a world where eligible bachelors boasted vast estates, Oxbridge educations and possibly a stint in the Navy or the chambers; single ladies were expected to speak several languages, sing and play piano, and be capable of running the home and raising children of equally excellent breeding. In both cases, it was, of course, advantageous if you looked good too. Either way, enjoy the video – and next time you swipe right, think of Jane Austen. This story is a part of BBC Britain – a series focused on exploring this extraordinary island, one story at a time.

On his way home afterwards, Macbeth and his friend meet three mysterious witches. Somehow, the witches already know Macbeth’s name.
