The play version of Romeo and Juliet was probably written early in Shakespeare's career around 1595 to 1596.

Is that what you are asking?

Within the play, the action takes place two weeks before Lammastide, or in July, before Juliet's birthday.

If you are referring to the duration of the play, the events take place over a period of 5 days, which begins on a Sunday.
