Love is the main theme in the play--it is the primary motivation behind the actions of both Romeo and Juliet, out of which the entire plot is built.

Playing a role. So like if I was Juliet and you were Romeo and the director was all like "role play as juliet" you would be juliet for a moment. This allows you to have an understanding of the other character and actor that you wouldnt have had anyway.


Friar Laurence in Romeo and Juliet, appears to play a small role, because of his mere seven scenes. However, closer examination reveals that the Friar plays a fundamental role in the development of the story. He is a confidant to Romeo, moves the plot, and is instrumental to the tragedy at the end of the play. At the beginning of the play the reader learns that Friar Laurence and Romeo are close friends. After Romeo explains to the Friar his love for Juliet, he tells him that him and Juliet must marry to end the feud between the two families. Also, his plan to make Juliet sleep for 48 hours while Romeo comes and takes her away, failed. He is the reason behind Romeo and Juliets death. _NOUR SOLIMAN_


It's dark, so Juliet can't see Romeo in her back yard. That is why she talks out loud to herself.


umm she plays: - the possible wife of Paris - the wife of romeo - daughter of lady capulet and probably many more things, as well


You are probably talking about the 1968 movie, directed by Franco Zeffirei. Leonard Whiting played the role as Romeo. Olivia Hussey played the role of Juliet.

Olivia Hussey played Juliet in the 1968 film "Romeo and Juliet". That wasn't in 1970 but there were no film versions of the play made that year. Probably a large number of actresses played the role on stage that year.


Juliets love; husband. Of the Montague family. At first is in "love" with Rosaline, cousins with Juliet, goes and "crashes" the Capulets masquerade. He then gets spotted by Tybalt, Juliets other cousin who at the time backs off but plans his revenge. Romeo falls in love with Juliet the moment he lays eyes on her, and asks her to marry him. He then gets banished for killing Tybalt, and in the end the two lovers die side byside.


Well, to answer my own question, here's an essay I wrote in grade 8 for this... Fate plays a powerful role throughout the tale of Romeo and Juliet, a role of which none of the characters can compare with, witness this role as you observe the play (In my case, reading the play). All the way through the misfortune of Romeo and Juliet, several types of love are shown. Benvolio feels that women are all identical, whereas, at the beginning, Romeo believes that love is some-sort of a form of pain. At the beginning, Juliet doesn't even know what love means. Paris's and Lady Capulet's definition for love is "in appearance." It is pretty obvious that Shakespeare wanted the audience to think that the only true love is the love that exists between Romeo and Juliet. I think that the first type of love that the audience is introduced to is the love of Benvolio; by how he feels that all women are identical. According to him, a man should love a woman for only the length of their relationship, meaning that if the relationship were to end, the man wouldn't feel sadness or sorrow, etc. even if the woman were to reject the man to begin with. In either situation, the man should plainly begin a new relationship with another woman. The next description of love comes from Romeo, but this is before the time he met Juliet. According to his definition, love is pain, but he means the kind of love that isn't felt by both people. I suppose Romeo is both right and also wrong, because not returned love is painful to the heart, but Romeo doesn't truly love, as he is simply infatuated by a woman. The next meaning of love comes from Juliet, before meeting Romeo; she didn't even have a definition of love. She seems to not know what love is, and, for that matter, does not seem to be concerned whatsoever. She remains unaware until she actually meets Romeo. Romeo and Juliet's love for each other also goes beyond one other thing: names. It shows that names don't matter. In our community the difference in names would be equal to two people of different races. The people would come from racist families in a modern day remake of the play. The final example of love in the play is parental love. This is shown in Act 5, scene 3 (Had to read on the internet for this essay, sorry). Lady Montague dies due to separation from Romeo. Capulet, Montague, Lady Capulet, and even the Nurse show that they love either Romeo or Juliet in this way as well. In the tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, countless types of love are shown. None of them are wrong, because the word "love" is a subject to interpretation, meaning that it's exact meaning is questionable, but it is obvious that Shakespeare did not have this in mind when he wrote the play. Shakespeare displays for us that the only type of love worth being in is "true love." He also shows us that, with all types of love, there is also all types of pain. If his objective was to influence the audience to believe that the only real love is the type of love that existed between Romeo and Juliet, I believe he accomplished this goal. Fate plays a powerful role throughout the tale of Romeo and Juliet, a role of which none of the characters can compare with, witness this role as you observe the play (In my case, reading the play).

when tybalt comes to juliet in capulets tomb


he is the cousin of romeo he is a peace maker and try's to stop all fights he helps romeo out in his times of need, but is respectful when romeo wants to be left alone


Rosaline is the niece of Capulet in Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare. Although silent and invisible, her role is important: Romeo first sees Juliet after crashing the Capulets' party to catch a glimpse of Rosaline.Scholars generally contrast Romeo's short-lived love of Rosaline with his later love of Juliet. Romeo's lines about Rosaline are much lamer than those he speaks after meeting Juliet.


He sets Romeo up by fighting with Tybalt and being killed by him. Dramatically this justifies Romeo in killing Tybalt in revenge, which turns his marriage into a "cancelled love".


usually a never had the chance to play Juliet on romeo and Juliet. in the actual play, a young boy, usually good looking and willing to dress like a young lady usually layed the role of Juliet.
