This is a children's comedy version of “Romeo and Juliet,” originally written in 2011 as a Year 6 leavers' play. It can just as easily be used at any time of the year, as presented here in its Smashwords edition. It would suit Year 6 (approx age. 11), of course, but could be performed by Year 5 or Year 7. The play retains the essential Shakespeare storyline.
