Romeo and Juliet – My Treatment of Scenes 1.5 and 2.2

Setting

My setting takes place in St. Louis, Missouri. St. Louis is divided into 4 parts which consists of the Northside, Westside, Eastside, and Southside. The big problem is between the Southside and the Eastside. St. Louis has a very high crime rate and is known for violence. St. Louis is very populated city.

Most neighborhoods have drug houses and or known for having shootouts often. No one really fells safe in St. Louis.

Time Period

This all takes place in the mid 2000′s. During this time drugs and rappers were very popular. This is good because rappers influenced most people to find away to make money.

House of Capulet

The Capulet’s are the rulers of Southside, St. Louis. Lord and Lady Capulet have been ruling this area for a long time and have never been replaced. The Capulet family is very wealthy and spend their money on things that are very pointless. The Capulet’s are also very stingy and don’t like to share much. People never mess with them because they come of very mean. The House of Montague’s aren’t scared of anything and arent scared to step up to anyone. The House of Capulet’s are conflicted with the Montague’s because their daughter is n love with the Montague’s son. This is very bad because every since the Montague’s  moved to St. Louis they haven’t liked each other.

Juliet

Juliet is the daughter of Lord and Lady Capulet. Juliet is 16 years old. Juliet is African American with short, black hair and hazel eyes. Juliet wants to be independent but her parents wont allow her to. Juliet’s wants to be with Romeo, but her parents have someone else in mind. Juliet doesn’t want Paris. Juliet parents love her very much and want nothing but the best for her.

House of Montague

The Montague’s are the rulers of Eastside, St. Louis. They are very brave and like to steal things from other people. The Montague’s make money by stealing things from other people and taking over other companies. This family cannot be trusted. Neighborhood families are scared of them and refuse to disobey them.

 Romeo

Romeo is the son of Lord and Lady Montague. Romeo is a 16 year old, African American with brown eyes. Romeo loves to get the girls attention. Romeo is also good at sweet talking young ladies like Juliet. Romeo fell in love with Juliet when he first laid eyes on her and knew that he didn’t want to be with anyone else. Romeo had nice and loving parents but most of the time they were never around.

The Play

I don’t know who she is, but she’s looking really good

Romeo

(To Romeo’s friend)

Oh my goodness. Why is she so beautiful? She fascinates my mind with her gorgeous looks. I want to wake up to this young lady every morning. I want to know what it would be like seeing her beautiful face everyday. I want to have the chance to get to know her. Her body sparkles with that shiny carmex on her lips. Her body sparkles even without the sun. She’s not like other girls, there something different about her. Just wait, one day she will be mind. My heart just dropped. I think I’m in love.

Tybalt

Who invited him?

Capulet

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

Tybalt

Man, don’t you know this is our enemy?

Capulet

Oh, I didn’t realize it was Romeo

Tybalt

Yes, this is our enemy Romeo

Capulet

Dude, just don’t worry about him. Be a nice gentlemen and respect him as long as he doesn’t disrespect you. If you ignore him the whole night I promise everything will go nice.

Tybalt

I know that I should be cool, but I just don’t like the fact that he’s here.

Capulet

I am the ruler here and I do not want my guest bothered!

Tybalt

Yes sir, but this is still a very bad shame.

Capulet

Now, would you go have fun and behave as a gentlemen.

Tybalt

[ Mumbling under his breath]
 

I guess I’ll be quiet for now.

Romeo

Would you please allow me one chance to know you? I promise you wont regret it and you’ll immediately fall in love. My lips to your lips wold be like pure heaven on earth.

Juliet

Oh my goodness, Did you really just kiss me? I really don’t know who else you have kissed.

Romeo

I have kissed no one, you are my first kiss.

Juliet

That was also my first kiss. I think we should really hang out more.

Romeo

When will I be able to see you again?

Juliet

How about we meet on my balcony after the party.

That sounds fine. Bye Love

Juliet

Juliet

Are you sure about that

Romeo

Yes, I’m very sure.

Juliet

Well, lets make it happen now!

Romeo

Juliet you know our families don’t get along very well. How can we be married without living in the same household. This wouldn’t work because I wouldn’t be able to see your pretty face.

Juliet

We could just runaway together.

Romeo

I will only do this because I want to be with you.

Juliet

Romeo I promise we will be together soon

Romeo

Do you really promise?

Juliet

I promise.

Romeo

I just wish you knew how I felt right now

Juliet

And how do you feel?

Of course. [ Kisses ]
