A charming retelling of Shakespeare's beloved tragedy, brought to you by the cuddly stars of A Guinea Pig Pride & Prejudice.

A Guinea Pig Romeo & Juliet tells the tragic tale of two star-crossed guinea pigs who fall in love at first nose twitch.

When Romeo and Juliet meet in a crowded ballroom, they don't realize that their families are sworn enemies. Later that night, Romeo overhears Juliet declaring her love for him from her balcony, and the two hatch a plan to marry and escape. But their great romance is ruined by the family rivalry, which tears them apart and leads to their tragic demise.

Portrayed with great heart by a darling cast of guinea pigs in adorable period costumes, A Guinea Pig Romeo & Juliet is Shakespeare as you've never seen him before.

William Shakespeare

William Shakespeare was born in Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire, in 1564. The date of his birth is unknown but is celebrated on 23 April, which happens to be St George's Day, and the day in 1616 on which Shakespeare died.

Aged eighteen, he married Anne Hathaway. They had three children. Around 1585 William joined an acting troupe on tour in Stratford from London, and thereafter spent much of his life in the capital. By 1595 he had written five of his history plays, six comedies and his first tragedy, Romeo and Juliet. In all, he wrote thirty-seven plays and much poetry, and earned enormous fame in his own lifetime in prelude to his immortality.
