This study of Romeo and Juliet focuses on the play as a series of topics, rather than adopting a chronological approach. Jackson sees the play as working through a series of dilemmas and choices which derive their potency from the vividness and poetic force of the figures portrayed, which in turn depends on how those characters are represented on stage. The portrayal of the two warring households of Capulet and Montague sets up the context for the ensuing action, but the key roles are of course the lovers, about whom the script is less than informative. Are they played as adolescents or are they idealized? If the Juliet is convincingly youthful, has she also the technique and insight to succeed in her role? How can an actor deal effectively with Romeo's moodiness and swift changeability?

Romeo and Juliet is a play written by William Shakespeare. It is set in Italy and is about the love between two young people from noble families that are enemies. Romeo and Juliet has always been one of Shakespeare's most popular plays. It has been adapted to opera, ballet, television productions, and movies.The noble families of the Montagues and the Capulets live in the city of Verona. They had an argument, and were enemies. Their servants were enemies as well. The young men who work for the Montagues and the Capulets get into gangs and fight each other in the street. Because it is fashionable to carry a sword, sometimes they get badly injured.Verona is ruled by Prince Escalus. He tells the Montagues and the Capulets that they have to stop fighting or they will be punished. It is very difficult to control the young men. Montague has only one child, a teenage boy called Romeo. Capulet also has only one child, a beautiful 14-year-old daughter called Juliet. They do not know each other, because Juliet never goes anywhere without her nursemaid. Romeo and his friends go to a masked ball at the home of Juliet's parents. Romeo and Juliet meet at a party and fall in love.Because they think they will get into trouble with their parents, they tried to hide their love by not talking about it at home. Juliet knows that her parents wanted her to marry a cousin of the prince. Romeo and Juliet get married in secret. Because of their secret marriage, a lot of things happen which bring about many deaths, including, finally, Romeo and Juliet kill themselves.
