Transcript of Romeo and Juliet plot line
The Prince of Verona comes and says that death is sentenced to anyone that fights on the streets. Montague and Lady Montague worry that Romeo took part in the fight. They find Romeo depressed and later Mercutio finds that Romeo is heartbroken over a woman named Rosaline. Rising Action 1 Lady Capulet, the nurse and Juliet talk about how Juliet is at the age of getting married. Lord Capulet is having a party and wants her to meet a man named Paris that wants to marry her. Because Juliet said it would be an honor to not marry, Lord Capulet told her to go to the party and try to let Paris "woo" her.
Romeo and his friends, Benvolio and Mercutio, hear about the Capulet party from one of the Capulet servants. Since Romeo is depressed over Rosaline, they want to go to the party to show Romeo that there are other better looking women. While at the party, Romeo and Juliet catch eachother's eye and they get extremely "friendly" with each other. By the end of the night, they kiss twice. They find out who the other is by the Nurse. During the party, Tybalt recognizes Romeo by his voice but because Lord Capulet said not to do anything and to save the violence for another day, Tybalt and Romeo did not end in a fight. After the party, Romeo wanders off and jumps over the wall, leaving his friends behind. Thinking Romeo is chasing after his love, Rosaline, who was also at the party, they left.
