a British's guide to Romeo & Juliet
This storyboard does not have a description.
I do bite my thumb, sir!
Do you bite your thumb at us, sir?
Act 1 continued, and Act 2
So, Verona, where the play is mostly set. we first see some geezers by the names of Abram, Sampson, Benvolio and some other geezers no one really cares about and don't really have to in their GCSEs. The quarrel begins when One of the Montague geezers bites their thumb at the Capulet geezers which they are instantly offended and ask the Montagues "do you bite your thumb at us, sir?". after repeated questions, a geezer named Tybalt insults the Montagues and draws his sword. They are then stopped by the authorities and the Prince tells them "your lives will pay the forfeit of the peace" if they cause a kerfuffle in the streets again. Later that day, Benvolio then sees Romeo contemplating life because of a lass named Rosaline. Romeo gives Benvolio little description of how he feels and finds out about the kerfuffle that happened earlier that day.
Still in Act 1, Romeo meets with Mercutio where he finds out about a party at Lord Capulet's home. The Montagues gatecrash the party and Romeo only went to the party to stare at Rosaline. So the party goes on for hours where Romeo still can't find his prey, so he decides to give up and then he sees Juliet, his next obsession. While meeting and staring at Juliet, "the fiery Tybalt" spots the young geezer Romeo and reports to Lord Capulet. Lord Capulet tells Tybalt "He shall be endured" and Tybalt leaves to enjoy the party. Romeo then spots his next obsession - Juliet. Romeo follows Juliet until he can get close enough to kiss her and she falls in love with him after a few kisses although she is meant to be married to Paris. After many kisses, the Capulet Nurse finds Juliet with Romeo and Nurse says to Juliet "your mother craves a word with you" so Juliet leaves with her to find her mother. The next important scene is the balcony scene, where Romeo leaves Benvolio, Mercutio and the servants to climb over the wall of the Capulet household to see Juliet on her balcony, Romeo quotes "but light, through yonder window breaks." before Juliet enters the scene
