Romeo and Juliet act 1 summeries

my main dude. Will I Am Shakespeare; The Playa.

Man up, Sally.

Paris wants to marry Capulet's daughter. Paris asks her father, Lord Capulet, for Juliet’s hand in marriage. Lord Capulet says that is fine, but he wants to make sure that’s what his daughter wants before he gives a final answer. Meanwhile, Romeo is sad and depressed still. So he decides to go to the feast even though he had to get forced to go by Mercutio and Benvolio. Romeo also wants to see Rosaline at the feast. Romeo’s buddies also tell him that there are going to be even hotter girls, and Rosaline is going to look like crap compared to them.

The "talk".. Awkward.

At the Capulet's house, Juliet, Lady Capulet, and the Nurse gather to talk about Paris's proposal. The Nurse starts the conversation by rambling about Juliet's childhood, providing frivolous information. Throughout the thirteen years of Juliet's life, she has made a special bond with her nurse. Also, when Juliet was a toddler she fell down cutting her head, and the Nurse’s old husband made a dirty joke about it. Lady Capulet soon shushes the Nurse and reveals that Paris has been asking for her hand in marriage. Juliet is not in the most impressed with Paris's doing and doesn't show any excitement but agrees she will go to the party that night and acknowledge Paris.

No Project 'X' though.

Romeo is feeling down, so his friends try and persuade him to go to a party. He is finally convinced because Mercutio brings up a magical fairy who causes men and women to have dreams--especially dreams about love. Marcucio convinces Romeo that dreams don't always explain life. Little did he know that Romeo's dream is actually foreshadowing of the future.
