As we read the play Romeo and Juliet we must keep in mind that the play was written to be performed to a live audience. Consider what might be captured on stage, in the interactions between characters, in the setting and stage, that might be lost when we simply read it aloud.

What do you see? What do you hear? What does the play Romeo and Juliet want us to think about, want us to believe in?
