Renowned author and Shakespearean scholar Leon Garfield adapts two of the playwright's works into modern day animations. The adaptations use a variety of animation techniques and feature the vocal talents of Linus Roache, Clare Holman and Sylvestra Le Touzel. 'Romeo and Juliet' is the classic tale of star-crossed love across social boundaries. Two feuding families in ancient Italy are alarmed when two of their most eligible progeny fall in love. 'As You Like It' is a cautionary tale about love and feuding with one's brother. Fighting over the intentions of a young lady, two brothers are driven to near murderous rage.
