It s true Juliet. Now, I want you to calm down. Calm down and listen to me. This is a terrible thing. A terrible thing for our family and a terrible thing for my business. My business could lose a lot of money with all this trouble. Tybalt was your cousin, but he was a fighter. We all knew that one day he would get hurt. And now it has happened. He is dead. He is dead and there is nothing we can do to bring him back. Now we need something good to happen to our family, we need something to make everyone happy. We need a wedding.

Tybalt killed Mercutio? Mercutio is dead too? Yes, it s terrible; it s all a terrible mess. But I still love you Juliet. Do you still love me? Yes, I still love you. But what can we do? They want me to marry Paris. I can t marry Paris, I m married to you, but I can t tell them that. What can we do? (off) Juliet, the Friar is here to see you. Friar Lawrence will help us. Listen to Friar Lawrence. He ll have a plan. He ll tell me what the plan is. Tell him to send me a message. A message. (off) Juliet They re coming. They re coming with Friar Lawrence. Go.

I thought that your marriage would stop the fighting between the two families, but I was wrong. It s all a terrible disaster. It s all my fault. No, it s not your fault. You were just trying to help us. And we still need your help. What can we do? Tybalt and Mercutio are dead and nothing we do can bring them back. But what about me and Romeo. We are alive and we are married and my Father wants me to marry Paris. What can we do? You must think of something. Yes, my dear, I have, I have thought of something. Listen very carefully. I have a plan. You must tell your father that you will marry Paris. What?! I will never marry Paris.

No, it isn t poison. It is a medicine. It is a very strong medicine. Drink it and it will make you sleep for two days. For two days you ll sleep very, very deeply and it won t be possible to wake you up. You will be cold and still and white, like death itself. Cold and still and white, and everyone will think that you are dead. They will think that I m dead! Then what? Then they ll put you in the tomb. They ll put you in the family tomb next to Tybalt. This activity is designed to be used in conjunction with a performance of Productions Romeo and Juliet.

13 Friar? (off ) In the tomb next to Tybalt! Ugh! In two days you ll wake up. I ll wake up, in the tomb, with dead bodies all around me! Don t worry. I ll send a message to Romeo. I ll send a message to Romeo, he will come and get you out of the tomb and then you can run away together, no-one will ever find you and you will live happily ever after. Will you do it? It s very dangerous, but if you don t do it you ll have to marry Paris. Yes, I ll do it. I ll never marry Paris. Never. Thank you Friar, I ll do anything to be with Romeo. Quick hide the medicine. Well, how is she? Oh, much better, much better. She s calmed down now. Good. And what are you going to do? Are you going to marry Paris and make your poor father a happy man or are you going to be the selfish, horrible, little girl that you always are? Yes, I ll marry Paris. I ll do anything to make my father happy. Oh, what fantastic news! What a good girl you are! I ll go and tell your Daddy immediately. Honey! I ve got some fantastic news! (goes off ) Now, I must go and send a message to Romeo. I must send a message to Romeo before it is too late. Remember, be brave little one. Be brave. Goodbye, Friar. Thank you. Now I must drink this medicine. I am scared. What if it really is poison! What if it kills me! What if I never wake up! No, I must drink it. It is the only way. The only way to be with Romeo. When I wake up I ll be in the tomb with dead bodies around me! But I must do it! Romeo will find me and we will be together. Oh, don t think about it, just drink. I ve told your daddy the good news, Juliet. Juliet? Oh, she s asleep. She must be tired with all the excitement! Juliet, wake up, Paris will be here soon! Juliet, sweetie, it s Daddy Juliet, wake up, your father wants to speak to you. Oh, she s so lazy. Teenagers! Always sleeping! Oh! What s happened! What s the matter with her? Juliet! Honey, wake up, it s Daddy. What is it? Shut up! Oh my god! She s dead. Dead? No, that s impossible. She can t be dead. She s got to marry Paris. This activity is designed to be used in conjunction with a performance of Productions Romeo and Juliet.

14 She didn t want to marry Paris and now she s killed herself. My little girl is dead! I ve killed her. I ve killed my only daughter! Scene 8: Outside the Tomb. Let me see. Where s that business card Romeo gave me?. I must phone him. I must phone him and tell him what s happened. Ah, here it is Oh no! He s not answering. Let me try again. Oh no! I must speak to Romeo. I must speak to him before he finds out about Juliet. I must find him. Romeo! Romeo! I need some more herbal tea. Scene 9: Inside the Tomb The Friar said he would phone me. Come on! Why doesn t he phone me? I need to know what the plan is. I need to know what has happened. I ll phone him. Oh no, I don t have his number. He took my number, but I didn t take his. I ll just have to wait. Look, I bought this poison. If they catch me for killing Tybalt I will take this poison and die. I ll kill myself before they put me in prison! What s this? Wow, it s the Capulet s family tomb. Tybalt s in there. Poor Tybalt. I didn t want to kill him. But he killed Mercutio. Mercutio was my best friend. I will go in and say a last goodbye to Tybalt. Juliet? Oh my god! Juliet! What has happened? She s not breathing, she s dead! Oh Juliet! I loved you more than anyone else in the world, but now you re dead. I can t live without you Juliet. If you are dead then I will die, too. This will be our last kiss. (kisses her, drinks poison and dies.) (waking up) Romeo? Oh my god! Romeo, what have you done? You thought I was dead and now you are dead! Well, I can t live without you Romeo. I will kill myself, too. Have you left a little poison for me? No, none left! And on your lips. No, there isn t any poison on your lips either. Then with your knife. I will kill myself with your knife and finally we will be together. (She dies) Perhaps, Verona will be peaceful now.
