Act 4, Scene 1

Tuesday morning

Friar Lawrence’s cell

Characters: Friar Lawrence, Paris, Juliet

Juliet goes to Friar Lawrence’s cell only to ding Paris already there talking to him. Paris try’s to call her his wife and she shuts him down saying that he can call her his wife when she is married to his but not until then. Paris leaves and Juliet express’s her hatred for Paris and says that if he can’t help her then she will take her life. She says that she would rather jump off a building, sleep in a slaughter house or be covered in bones which she must sleep upon rather that marry Paris. Friar Lawrence then comes up with an elaborate plan to make Juliet look dead so that she is unable to marry Paris. Upon waking up she will see Romeo and Friar standing above her and they will take her away to live with Romeo in Mantua.
