Transcript of Two households, both alike in dignity,

Two households,
both alike in dignity,
In fair Verona,
where we lay our
scene
,

Two families,
both very similar,
In the beautiful city of Verona,
where our story takes place,

From ancient grudge
break to new mutiny,
Where civil blood
makes civil hands
unclean
.

A history of hatred
with new violence,
And citizens
even outside the family die.

From forth the fatal loins
of these two foes
A pair of star-cross’d lovers
take their
life
;

The children
from these hate-filled families
Fall in love
and commit suicide;

Whose misadventur’d
piteous overthrows
Doth with their death
bury their parents’
strife
.

Many things
keep the two apart
And their final death
causes the families to end their hate.

The fearful passage
of their death-mark’d love,
And the continuance
of their parents’
rage
,

The events
that lead to their suicide,
And the hate
between their parents’,

Which, but their children’s end,
nought could remove,
Is now the two hours’ traffic
on our
stage
;

Which nothing but their children’s death could end,
Is now a performance for you these next two hours;

The which if you
with patient ears
attend
;
What here shall miss,
our toil shall strive to
mend
.

If you
listen patiently;
What is missing in this introduction,
the play will explain.
