Romeo and Juliet

Written by William Shakespeare
Directed by PJ Paperelli
Jun 2 — Jun 17, 2001
Shakespeare Glen, Forest Park

In Verona, Sampson and Gregory (Capulet servants) complain that they will not put up with insults from the Montague family. Abram and Balthasar (Montague servants) appear and the four start quarreling. Benvolio (Lord Montague’s nephew) appears and tries to break up the quarrel, but Tybalt (Lady Capulet’s nephew) appears and picks a fight with Benvolio. At length, officers try to break up the fight, even while Lord Capulet and Lord Montague begin to fight one another. The Prince of Verona (Escalus) appears and stops the fighting, proclaiming sentences of death to any that renew the fighting.
