Storyboard Text

  • Exposition
  • Down with the Capulets!
  • Down with the Montagues!
  • Rising Action
  • Who is she? I think I'm in love
  • Rising Action
  • I had to! He killed Mercutio!
  • The exposition of Romeo and Juliet introduces the Setting, the city of Verona, main conflict between rival families, the Capulets and Montagues, and introduces the main characters, Romeo Montague, who is depressed because the woman he loves does not return his love, and Juliet Capulet, who is sad because her mother would like her to marry, whereas she is uninterested.
  • Climax
  • Take this, it will make you appear to be dead
  • In the first rising actions, Romeo discovers Juliet, and they both fall in love, and then get married later on. This presents another conflict, however, as the two lovers are of separate families which hate each other, as well as the conflict that Juliet's father already plans on marrying her to another man, Paris.
  • Falling Action
  • I love you, Romeo
  • In the next rising actions, Tybalt kills Mercutio in a street brawl when Romeo shows up, who he then duels, as well, and loses to, and dies. As punishment, the Prince of Verona lets Romeo off easily, because he only killed Tybalt because Tybalt killed his friend, by banishing him, whereas the usual price of murder is death.
  • Resolution
  • We're sorry, Montagues!
  • We're sorry, Capulets!
  • The Climax of Romeo and Juliet reveals a worried Juliet who seeks solace in Friar Lawrence. The two come up with a plan of Juliet taking a drug that will make her appear to be dead to her family, only to have her wake up 48 hours and sneak off with Romeo. It is also in the climax that Juliet executes this plan.
  • I love you, Juliet
  • In the Falling Actions, Romeo receives word of Juliet's death, but does not here that she is not really dead. A broken Romeo goes to Juliet's tomb to kill himself and die with her, where he meets Paris and, after Paris attacks Romeo for killing Tybalt, he is killed by Romeo, who then kills himself beside Juliet. Juliet then, of course, wakes up, only to see Romeo dead next to her, and then kills herself.
  • Resolving the story, the Capulet and Montague families realise the destruction that their rivalry has brought about, and choose to make up with each other, ending their disputes.
