Description Shakespeare. "This exciting interpretation is directed by Queensland (and indigenous) director, Wesley Enoch, who has set the classic tale of love and warring families in inner-city Australia, in a world where two young people look past the differences of culture and colour. As we approach the second millennium, Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet becomes a true story of reconciliation". Richard Evans
