Romeo and Juliet

Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare
By: (1564-1616)

Romeo and Juliet is an early tragedy by William Shakespeare about two teenage “star-cross’d lovers” whose “untimely deaths” ultimately unite their feuding households. The play has been highly praised by literary critics for its language and dramatic effect. It was among Shakespeare’s most popular plays during his lifetime and, along with Hamlet, is one of his most frequently performed plays. Its influence is still seen today, with the two main characters being widely represented as archetypal young lovers.

Thanks for the thought of making this but the voice of the person I can't stand. He sounds like that frog from the Muppets.
