Extracts from this document...


Romeo & Juliet Directors' points of view. The mood in the theatre starts of happy and romantic as Romeo and Juliet are holding each other close. There is a sudden change of atmosphere in the theatre as the time has come for Romeo and Juliet to say good bye to one another, as Romeo climbs down in to the audience Juliet is left alone, as she waves a tear rolls down her face and she drops to the floor crying. Juliet is in the middle of the stage to represent her vulnerability and metaphoric for her open wounds. It's clear to the audience how heart broken she is at the fact of never seeing her husband ever again. Juliet makes her way over to where Romeo left and crawls up into a ball crying. At this moment I'm hoping for the audience to emphasise with her and feel sad and to recognise the sudden change in atmosphere.

The nurse says nothing she just holds her back wiping away Juliet tears, shaking her head. Juliet pleads the nurse for help but all the nurse does is agree with Juliet parents. Was it partly her fault for allowing Romeo and Juliet to get married and cover for them, does she think its all her fault, must she do right by the Capulet family. The tension has gone down in the theatre but the sadness is at its highest, the nurse leaves Juliet on her own, with no-one at all to turn to. She stands up and walks away sobbing, then collapses in the floor back of the stage, the audience will wonder what has happened, is she ok? The she sits up holding herself showing her complete isolation and loneliness. ...read more.
