Dear Ms Brittany Andrews,

Romeo and Juliet Coursework 665 Bangor Road Bingley Ireland B11 8SQ Dear Ms Brittany Andrews, I am writing to offer you the part of Juliet in William Shakespeare's excellent play, Romeo and Juliet. I feel that you will be perfect for the part, as I have seen, and enjoyed many other things that you have done. You should be familiar with the rest of the cast, I have Daniel Day-Lewis (as Capulet), Elijah Wood (as Romeo) Dame Judy Dench (as Lady Capulet and Eddie Murphy (as Mercutio) I hope that you will be happy with who you are working with, I feel that you will fit in perfectly. Although you may know who basics about Romeo and Juliet, I will tell you more about what it is. Romeo and Juliet is a love story, involving two young teenagers, Romeo who is 18, and Juliet who is 13. Their families are at war with each other, but this doesn't stop them from having feelings for each other. ...read more.


She is very distant from them both, and I feel that you can show this when you are acting as Juliet by doing a few things. Not making proper eye contact with them, and standing a fair distance away from them will both contribute to the fact that you are distant from them. Also at this point in the play Juliet doesn't think of wanting to be married to anyone, when she has the proposal from Paris. Yet she rapidly changes her mind when she meets Romeo, and she falls in love with him. You and Romeo should be very close; you should show this by being fairly shy around him, and smiling at him whilst making a lot of eye contact with him. All of these things should lead to a good performance from you all. There is one main scene in the play that I would like to fully explain to you, and this is Act 3 Scene 5, which you will find in the script attached. ...read more.


This makes Juliet surprised, "What unaccustomed cause procures her hither" showing how confused she is by this. Juliet then quickly moves away from the window, by where Romeo has just left. Here I would like you to be on edge, while speaking quickly showing a sense of panic and nervousness because of the fact that Romeo has just left a few minutes before. The relationship between Juliet and her mother in these few lines is very formal, as they exchange very short sentences and here I want you to be not making any eye contact with Lady Capulet, to show this formal relationship. From lines 61 onwards, Lady Capulet mistakes Juliet's sorrow for Romeo leaving as grieving for Tybalt, and this just further illustrated how distant they really are as mother and daughter, "Evermore weeping for your cousins death?", this is an instance where Lady Capulet mistakes Romeo for Tybalt. Lady Capulet describes Juliet as being foolish and irrational for crying so much over Tybalt, "But much of grief shows still some want of wit", and saying that she is over reacting to the situation, yet Lady Capulet does not know the true reason behind her crying. ...read more.
