His name is Romeo, and a Montague; The only son of your great enemy. My only love sprung from my only hate!
If I profane with my unworthiest hand This holy shrine, the gentle fine is this: My lips, two blushing pilgrims, ready stand To smooth that rough touch with a tender kiss. Good pilgrim, you do wrong your hand too much, Which mannerly devotion shows in this; For saints have hands that pilgrims' hands do touch, And palm to palm is holy palmers' kiss. His name is Romeo, and a Montague; The only son of your great enemy. My only love sprung from my only hate!

We know Shakespeare intended Juliet to be played by a young man - all female roles were played by boys and men at that time. But this version, staged by the Liverpool Everyman, is the first time a major British theatre has made it about gay lovers. In the original Romeo and Juliet, the hero is initially in love with Rosaline before falling for Juliet. In the Liverpool version, Bagnall says Romeo is confused about his sexuality.
