Romeo and Juliet

Sacramento Theatre Company

1419 H Street | Sacramento, CA


DESCRIPTION

The story revolves around three families from Verona. The Ruling House, the House of Capulet (Juliet) and that of Montague (Romeo). The story begins with a street brawl fired by the feud between the Montague and Capulet families. When the Prince of Verona announces that continued fighting would result in punishment, Count Paris of the ruling house expresses his desire to marry Juliet.

After the brawl, Benvolio learns about Romeo’s lost-love Rosaline, one of Lord Capulet’s nieces. A meeting between Romeo and Juliet takes place at a ball arranged for Count Paris to meet Juliet. Romeo meets and falls in love with Juliet. They seek the support of Friar Laurence, who longs for a reconciliation between the two families. Romeo and Juliet marry in secret. Tybalt, Juliet’s cousin challenges Romeo to a duel.  However, because of Juliet, Romeo refuses to fight him and calls on the ire of Mercutio, who accepts in Romeo’s place.

When Mercutio is wounded in the duel, Romeo slays Tybalt and is exiled. Juliet’s grief is worsened when Lord Capulet makes plans for her wedding with Count Paris. She seeks help from Friar Laurence. The plan they come up with is that Juliet will consume a drug that will take her into a coma for nearly two days. A message to Romeo about the plan never reaches him.  On the eve of her marriage to Count Paris, Juliet takes the drug and is declared dead.

Romeo hears about her ‘death’ and buys poison before visiting the family crypt. Believing that his lady love is dead, Romeo drinks the poison. When Juliet awakes to discover Romeo’s corpse, she stabs herself. The families meet at the tomb and hear the story of the lovers from the Friar. They reconcile and the violent feud is declared over.
