Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Act 3 Scene 1 Lines 33-86 Ice Hockey Match Friday 26th March 2010 Team Capulet have black jerseys to represent evil and ruthlessness. Team Montague have white jerseys to indicate innocence. Romeo wears the usual referee uniform. (black and white stripes). This shows that he is trying to bring the teams together. When Mercutio and Tybalt are fighting the room seems to get colder. Spectators are shocked at the violence of the fight. Ice hockey fights are not uncommon, but none have escalated to this amount of violence. When Mercutio is killed there is a horrified gasp and then the lights turn off. In the first line (By my head, here come team Capulet.) Bonvolio speaks in a panicked voice.

MERCUTIO Good king of cats, nothing but one of your nine lives; that I mean to make bold withal, and as you shall use me hereafter, drybeat the rest of the eight. Will you pluck your stick out of his pitcher by the ears? make haste, lest mine be about your ears ere it be out. TYBALT I am for you. Drawing ROMEO Gentle Mercutio, put thy stick up. MERCUTIO Come, sir, your passado. They fight ROMEO Draw, Benvolio; beat down their sticks. Gentlemen, for shame, forbear this outrage!

Tybalt's skate digs into Mercutio' stomach. ...read more.
