Romeo and Juliet for sure. Read it first when I was about 15 and loved it; I think it might be why I'm such a sappy person these days 😂

Please may I open a side-alley on this and ask about your LEAST favourite Shakespeare play? For me it has to be 'As You Like It' - though I am prepared to admit it may date way back to having it taught excruciatingly badly at school, perhaps if I saw a really good production of it it might help. Ironically, Rosalind is one of my favourite names!

My favorite Shakespeare play is Much Ado About Nothing. I read it and watched a movie adaption my senior year of high school and I just liked how fun it was. I think it fit well with the trend in literature that was heavily rising then, with the sarcastic witty women protagonists. At least for me that's how it felt.

Romeo and Juliet is my least favourite, probably because it's the most mistreated in films, remaking, having the story flaunted at every occasion.
The Taming Of The Shrew is my favourite, maybe because I see a bit of myself in it :o :D

I actually really started to enjoy some of the histories over the last few years. Richard III and Henry V are epic, funny, sad, and everything you want from a good play all together.

It must be Hamlet for me. I connected with it the most at the time I was reading his books.
