Star-Crossed Lovers

By William Shakespeare and Ben Spiller


Romeo and Juliet are trapped in Joseph Wright's painting of the final scene of the play. That is, until Shakespeare appears to bring them to life. Starting at the end, the star-crossed lovers rewind to their first meeting and fall in love all over again. Experience their hope, their love and their desperation as they play out their story to its tragic conclusion.
