Romeo and Juliet – My Treatment of Scenes 1.5 and 2.2

Setting

My setting takes place in Chicago, Illinois. This city is divided into 4 parts which is the Northside, Southside, Westside, and Eastside. This city is very populated and the population is going down beacause of all the lives that are being taken away. The most important parts that will play a big role are the Northside and the Westside. This is a city of violence.

The people that live in this city do not feel safe anymore. Their even scared to come out of their house. This city gets their money from drug trades, violent business, and secretive jobs.

Time Period

The time period is in the mid 2000′s . This time period is great for my story because this is the era when drug trades and violent bussiness became so big.

House of Capulet

 The Capulet family is the ruling family of Northside Chicago. Lord and Lady Capulet are the rulers of Northside Chicago, and have been ruling for a long time. The Capulet family is very wealthy and they don’t have a problem with spending their money either. This family is also very caring.  They help their neighbors and give the homeless baskets of food with travel blankets.  People will never try to mess with them because they are scared of the consequences. The House of Montague aren’t scared of them at all.  The Capulets are conflicted with the Montagues because their daughter has fallen in love with their son.  And they have always not liked each other because the Montagues took their drugs. 

Juliet

Juliet is a 16 year old young lady. She is the daughter of Lord and Lady Capulet. She is African American with long dark black hair, and light brown eyes. She is ambitious and she also wants to be independent, but her mom and dad doesn’t want her to be. She wants to be with Romeo, but her mom and dad wants her to be Paris. Juliet doesn’t want Paris. Juliet is cherished in her family and all they want is the best for her.

House of Montague

The Montague family is the ruling family of Westside Chicago. The Montague family is very wealthy and they get their money from stealing things from others.  This family can’t be trusted. And the neighborhood fears they’ll get their things taken away from them. The Montague are conflicted with the Capulets because they do not want Romeo and Juliet together. 

Romeo

Romeo is a 16 year old boy. He is the son of Lord and Lady Montague. He is African American with a low cut, and has dark brown eyes. He is very motivated and he’s a great sweet talker. When Romeo seen Juliet he felt like it was love at first sight and she was the only girl that he loved. His parents loved him but they were hardly around.

The Play

Prologue

 Juliet is at her father’s local teen club sitting with a group of friends talking about the latest summer fashion. Juliet’s friend spots out Romeo looking at her.

1 Teen

Oooo, Juliet you have a stalker.

Act 1, Scene 5

Romeo

Who’s that beautiful young lady sitting over there?

 Romeo’s Friend

I’m not sure, but she’s mighty fine.

Romeo

(To Romeo’s Friend)

Oh, why is she so beautiful? She’s so fine she blows my mind. I can’t think of not waking up next to her. I wonder what it’s like seeing her beautiful face every day. I hope I have a chance with her. She just glistens with the shimery lip gloss on her lips. She just has a glow. There is something different about her I can tell. She’ll be mine one day. Did my heart just fall? I think I’m in love!

[Tybalt spots Romeo at the party]

Tybalt

Why is he here? 

Capulet

Don’t worry about it, just enjoy the night. 

Tybalt

Bruh, this is our enemy.

Capulet

Ain’t that Romeo?

Tybalt

Yes that is our enemy Romeo.

Capulet

 Just be cool, act as a gentlemen, but as long as he doesn’t disrespect you. Everything will be okay. Just ignore him and the night will go smoothly.

Tybalt

I just can’t stand the fact that he’s in my presence.

Capulet

I am the master not you! Do not disturb my guest!

Tybalt

This is a shame!

Capulet

No, stop it! Behave yourself.

Tybalt

[Talking to himself]
 
I’ll be quiet, only for now.
 

Romeo

[Takes Juliet's hand]

If you let me just have at least one chance with you, you won’t regret it and you’ll love me forever. My lips to your lips it’ll feel like heaven.

Juliet

Oh my gosh, did you really just kiss me? I don’t know where your lips been.

Romeo

My lips have only been on you, you are my first kiss.

Juliet

You were my first kiss too, I think we should get to know each other more.

Romeo

So, when will I be able see you again?

Juliet

Meet me on my balcony after the party.

Romeo

Okay, Bye Love.

Juliet

Bye, Romeo.

Hey, the most beautiful girl in the world!

Juliet

[Juliet starts to blush]
 

Hey Romeo.

Romeo

You’re just so beautiful Juliet, you’ll be mine one day.

Juliet

Oh Really?

Romeo

Yes Really?

Juliet

Well, let’s make it official!

Romeo

Our families don’t get along. How will we be married and not even be together in the same home? I wouldn’t be able to see your beautiful face every day.

Juliet

We’ll just run away together.

Romeo

Okay, I’ll do it because I want to be with you.

Juliet

Romeo, we will be together soon! No matter what!

Romeo

You Promise?

Juliet

I Promise!

Romeo

You just don’t know how I feel right now!

Juliet

And how is that?

Romeo

I feel like I’ve found the right one for me! I know you’ll be my ride or die and I know it. It was just like love at first sight.  When I see your face my heart just dropped because you’re just so beautiful.

Juliet

Awwwn, that’s so sweet Juliet! You really make me feel some type of way.

Maid

[Enters Juliet's Room]

Juliet, Where are you?

Juliet

I was just looking outside.

Romeo

I’ll leave now, but can we just share one last kiss?

Maid

Well, come on in here.

Juliet

[Talking to Romeo]
 
Of course. [Kisses]
 

Romeo

Bye, My Love.

Juliet

Bye, Romeo.

Maid
