Synopsis


Shakespeare's romantic tragedy speaks of destiny, chance and fortune all sparked by a historic family feud.


Romeo and Juliet die.


It's not a spoiler.


It's written in the stars.


Fate. Final. Finite.


But what if it isn't?


What might have happened if other choices had been made?


What if all the tragedy and heartache could have been avoided?


What if the loss of those young lives could have been prevented?


A violent street brawl between their rival families is the prelude to Romeo's first encounter with Juliet.


Despite this, and the fact that Juliet has been promised to another man in marriage, they fall in love.


But any plans for their future happiness are cruelly destroyed by renewed violence between the two families - and while the adults remain almost comically preoccupied with their own affairs, among their children a hidden tragedy begins to unfold.
