2 Scene 1. In a square in Verona. Playscript The Capulet family and the Montague family are great enemies. Two servants of the Capulet family are working when two servants of the Montague family arrive. They start fighting. More people from the two families arrive and the fighting is stopped by the Prince of Verona who is very angry. SAMPSON: GREGORY: SAMPSON: BENVOLIO: TYBALD: Now, Gregory, clean everything well. You know Lord Capulet will be very angry if everything is not clean. Oh, look Sampson. Look who's coming. What do Montague's servants want here? Are you looking for a fight? Stop it! Stop fighting, all of you! What's happening? Are you fighting the poor servants, Benvolio? Now fight me and prepare to die! I hate you and all Motagues! Lord and Lady Montague arrive. LORD MONTAGUE: What's happening? What's all this noise? Give me my sword. LADY MONTAGUE: You're too old to fight, dear. Lord and Lady Capulet arrive.

3 LORD CAPULET: Look, dear.old Montague wants to fight. Well, now he can fight me! The Prince of Verona arrives. PRINCE: LORD MONTAGUE, LORD CAPULET AND BENVOLIO: Stop it! Stop this fighting now! Everybody stop! Put down your swords and listen to me. I am very angry. This fighting must stop. If the Capulet family or the Motague family disturb the peace again, you will pay with your lives. Do you understand? Capulet, come with me. I want to talk to you. Montague, come to my palace this afternoon. Remember, I want no more fighting between your two families. Yes, noble Prince. LORD MONTAGUE: What happened, Benvolio? BENVOLIO: LADY MONTAGUE: Well, uncle, the servants and Tybald started fighing. I tried to stop them. And where is my son, Romeo? LORD MONTAGUE: Romeo is very sad. What's the problem? Do you know? BENVOLIO: ROMEO: BENVOLIO: ROMEO: I don't know. But look, here he comes. I'll ask him. Good morning cousin. Why are you so sad? I'm in love Benvolio, but she doesn't love me. She who? Who do you love? The beautifull Rosaline, cousin. I will always love her. I will never forget her.

4 Scene 2. In a square in Verona. Paris asks Lord Capulet if he can marry his daughter Juliet. Lord capulet gives invitations for a big party and Romeo and his cousin decides to go to the party because Rosaline will be there. PARIS: LORD CAPULET: PARIS: LORD CAPULET: Sir, your daughter Juliet is very beautiful. I would like to marry her. You know she's only thirteen years old. She is very young. But, Sir, girls get married very young these days. Of course, Paris. I agree. If Juliet agrees and loves you too, you can marry her. Tonight there is a party at my house. We will celebrate. ( Speaking to Sampson) These are the invitations to the party. Please, deliver them. SAMPSON: ROMEO: BENVOLIO: Oh no! I can't read. I never went to school, so I can't deliver the invitations. Excuse me, Sirs. Can you tell me the names on these envelopes? They are invitations to Lord Montague's party this evening. Of course! No problem, I can read. Mr Martino, his wife and daughters, Sir Anslem, Mercutio, Valentino, Rosaline... Rosaline! Did you hear, Romeo? Rosaline will be at the pary tonight. We must go to the party!

5 Scene 3. In Juliet's bedroom. Lady Capulet: Lady Capulet: Where is my daughter? Juliet! Juliet you're almost fourteen. It's a good age to get married. Yes, that's right. I remember when you were a baby, a pretty little thing, and now you're almost fourteen I think... Juliet and Lady Capulet: Be quiet, Nurse! Lady Capulet: Lady Capulet: Well Juliet, what do you think? Sorry, Mother, I'm not interested. I'm only thirteen. I'm too young to get married. When I was fourteen I was a mother! Anyway, Paris wants to marry you. Tonight he will be at the party. Tomorrow you must tell me your decision. Oh yes, it's important to have a good husband: rich, handsome and kind. You will have happy days and happy nights... Juliet and L Capulet: Be quiet, Nurse!

6 Scene 4. Lord's Capulet house. Mercutio and Benvolio:Romeo, stop dreaming! Who is that beautiful girl? Mercutio: Sorry, Romeo, I don't know. I love her! Mercutio: And Rosaline? Rosaline is nothing to me now. Tybald: Lord Capulet: Uncle, Uncle! I know that voice. It's the voice of a Montague. I will kill him immediately! Stop, stop, stop! Who is it? Young Romeo Montague? Tybald: Lord Capulet: Tybald: Yes, Uncle. It's not important, Tybald. Remember our promise to the Prince. This is a party. Let's be happy. Yes, Uncle! Romeo goes to Juliet. You are very beautiful. Thank you.

7 Can I kiss you? I don't know you. But I love you, I must kiss you. The nurse arrives and interrupts them. Romeo goes away. Juliet, your mother wants to speak to you. Who is she? Who is her mother? Her mother is the Lady of the house, young man. The Lady of the house? She must be a Capulet. It is impossible. I hate the Capulets, but I love her. Nurse, who is that young man? Please, go and ask if he is married. His name is Romeo. He's a Montague and the only son of your greatest enemy. It's impossible! My only love comes from my only hate! This is her house. There is a light at the window. It is the east and Juliet is the sun. Her eyes are stars. She is an angel.

8 Oh, Romeo, Romeo, why are you my enemy? Forget your father, forget your family and your name. Our names are not important. Oh, Juliet. I will do anything for you. But, our families are enemies. What can we do? I want to marry you. Tomorrow morning my nurse will come to you. Make a plan for our wedding and tell her everything. Goodbye, sweet Romeo. Goodnight, dear Juliet.

9 Scene 5. At the monastery. Romeo asks Friar Laurence to help him marry Juliet. Friar Laurence: Friar Laurence: Friar Laurence: Friar Laurence: Oh, good morning, Romeo. What are you doing at this hour? I'm going to bed late, Father. Were you with young Rosaline? No, Father, I was with Juliet, not Rosaline. I love Juliet and she loves me too. We want to get married... today! Holy Saint Francis. This is a big change, young man. Are you sure? Before, you loved Rosaline. Of course I'm sure. Come to me this afternoon. Thank you, Father. Scene 6. In a square in Verona Juliet's Nurse speaks to Romeo about the plans for the wedding. Benvolio: Mercutio: Benvolio: Mercutio, Tybald gave a letter to Romeo. He wants to fight him. Yes, it's true, but... Hey look, someone's coming. Good morning, Gentlemen. Do you know where Romeo is? Yes, I'm Romeo. Sir, I must talk to you... in private. Ha, ha! Romeo, be careful. She's too old for you. Goodbye, old lady. Goodbye Romeo. Remember, be careful!

10 I'm sorry about my friends, Nurse. They like to joke. Now, Juliet must go to Friar Laurence's room this afternoon and we will be married. Good, Sir! She will be there. Scene 6. Juliet's bedroom. Juliuet: Where is Nurse? She went out at nine o'clock this morning. Now it's twelve o'clock. Oh, here she is. Hello, dear. Well, what did he say? One moment, dear. I'm very tired. I must rest first. What? Tired! Nurse, speak to me! Romeo is a handsome young man, Juliet, and he's got nice legs. Now, what did you eat for lunch? But, Nurse, what did he say about our wedding? Oh, Juliet, I've got such a terrible headache. Nurse! Well, Romeo says... Where is your mother, dear? What did Romeo say? He said you must go to Friar Laurence's room this afternoon and you will be married. Oh thank you, Nurse, thank you. Now I must go and prepare.

I don't want to fight you, Tybald. You're like a cousin to me. I'll fight you, Tybald. Stop it! remember what the Prince said! He's dead. You killed our friend. Now it's your turn.

12 Benvolio: Quick! Run, Romeo. The Prince will be very angry if he sees what you did. L. Capulet: Oh no! It's my brother's son! Tybald is dead and a Montague killed him. Noble Prince, remember what you said. Prince: Benvolio: Prince: Benvolio, what happened? Tybald killed Mercutio, and Romeo killed Tybald to revenge his friend. This time I will be generous, Romeo must leave Verona and never return. If he returns, he will die! Scene 9. Juliet is in her room. She is crying. Lady C. : Lady C. : Lord C. : Good morning, dear. Why are you so sad? Are you crying for your poor cousin Tybald? Yes, Mother. Well, don't worry. I have some good news. Your father is organising a big wedding for you.
