This is the prologue from Romeo and Juliet

Two households, both alike in dignity

In fair Verona, where we lay our scene

From ancient grudge break to new mutiny

Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean. 

From forth the fatal loins of these two foes

A pair of star-cross’d lovers take their life 

Whose misadventured piteous overthrows

Do with their death bury their parents’ strife.

Closing date for 2018 entries: Friday 6th April 6pm
