Storyboard Text

  • In Scene 2 of Act I of Romeo and Juliet, a servant of Lord Capulet goes up to Romeo and Benvolio for help with reading an invitation list. The irony is when the servant says SERVANT. My master is the great/ rich Capulet; and if you be not of the house of Montagues, I/ pray come and crush a cup of wine (1.2.79-81).  The audience knows Romeo and Benvolio are of the Montague house but the servant doesn't.
  • In Scene One of Act II in Romeo and Juliet, Mercutio jokes about Romeo's love sickness. Mercutio and Benvolio believe that Romeo is in love with a girl named Rosaline when the irony is that he's in love with Juliet instead. 
  • In Scene 5 Act IV, Lady Capulet believes Juliet is upset because of Tybalt's death when Juliet is really crying over Romeo's exile. 
  • In Scene 2 Act III, the irony here is when Juliet mistakes the Nurse for saying Romeo was dead when in actuality the Nurse is talking about Tybalt's death.
  • In Scene 1 Act V, the irony is Balthasar telling Romeo that Juliet is dead when Juliet is actually alive and faking her death. 
  • In Scene 2 Act V, the irony is that Friar Laurence believes Romeo i still in Mantua when Romeo is actually coming back to Verona to be with Juliet.
