Dossier: The Nurse
She has long, dirty brown hair, tied into a tight bun. Her face is weathered, but kind, and showing wrinkles. She is quite plump. She is often quite red in the face.
She dearly loves Juliet, and her love is returned, and always wishes the best for her. If Juliet is upset, so is the Nurse. The Nurse's care for Juliet often comes before her own good, showing her kind hearted self.
Despite being quite plump and red in the face, the Nurse doesn't care and doesn't let it bother her.
The Nurse always acts with Juliet in mind, so as the Nurse you must care for Juliet and Juliet must be your entire world
Juliet's relationship with the Nurse is one of the more loving relationships in the play. As the Nurse, you must clearly show your love and protectiveness to Juliet.
The teenage boys don't treat the Nurse very well. When the Nurse asks her man, Peter, for her fan, Mercutio says "Good Peter, to hide her face. For her fan's the fairer face", and throughout the whole encounter they are generally rude to her.
The Nurse is a servant of the Capulet household, so therefore the feud affects her greatly. For instance, she's loyal to the Capulets, and "against" the Montagues. However, you do not openly fight the Montagues, mainly because you are a woman, and attend to Juliet and stay in the house.
