Extracts from this document...


Directing a scene from Romeo and Juliet Act 3 scenes 1 Car Chase For our presentation we have chosen to rein act the fight between Tybalt and Romeo, Tybalt is slain and Romeo flees. We have decided to change the scene by having the fight as a car chase, this will bring the play in to modern day times and make the play more realistic.

Both will have both hands on their steering wheels. Body language: Romeo and Tybalt both confident and nervous of the outcome of what is about to go down.
