Okay, so today let´s talk about the plot. What happened in the story? I finished reading the play so now I am going to tell you what the whole play was about. At the beginning, as I have already mentioned there was a brawl between the Capulets and the Montagues. It seemed to me, that the Montagues did not want this because Benvolio tried to discuss peace with Tybalt. Unfortunately Tybalt said he hates peace and hates Montagues so a fight started. After the end of the fight, both the Montague leader with his wife and the Capulet leader with his fight had a talk with Princ Escalus. He is very angry and tells them that if they ever fight again in the streets of Verona, they will pay with their lives.

In the next scene, Benvolio is talking to father Montague about Romeo and are wondering what is the cause for his sadness and depression. Benvolio then has a talk with Romeo and finds out that Romeo is heart broken. Benvolio tells him to forget about her. The girl is a girl named Rosaline who does not return Romeo´s love.

Later Paris, a kinsman of the Prince, is having a talk with father Capulet about marrying Juliet. The father says that he should wait two more years because Juliet is not even fourteen yet. Then he invites Paris to a party he is having later at his house where Paris and Juliet can start knowing each other better and maybe even fall in love. Also, father Capulet hands a list of the invited people to the party to his servant. Meanwhile, Romeo and Benvolio still discuss Rosaline when they meet the servant with the party invites. Benvolio persuades Romeo to crash the party in order not to think about Rosaline anymore. However, Romeo sees Rosaline´s name on the invitation list si he decides to go. At the same time in the Capulet household, Juliet is talking to her mother and to her nurse about the possibility of marrying Paris. She decides she will look at him during the party to see if she is able to ever fall in love with him.

Later on, sad Romeo enter the party together with Benvolio and Mercutio. On the party he sees Juliet from a distance and instantly fall in love with her. While they are watching each other, Tybalt recognizes Romeo and is mad that he had the nerve to crash their party. He prepares to fight but the other Capulets hold him back. Later, Romeo and Juliet meet again this time kissing without even knowing their names. Unfortunately they soon find out that Romeo is a Montague and Juliet a Capulet. They are both upset. As Mercution and Benvolio leave the party, Romeo leaves into Juliet´s garden and when she is on the balcony their exchange love vows.

After this, Romeo runs to Friar Lawrence who agrees to marry Romeo and Juliet eventhough he is confused by Romeo´s sudden change. This wedding is going to happen is secret.The next day, Juliet arrives at the church with the help of her nurse and marries Romeo. The nurse decides to put a ladder to Juliet´s window so that Romeo can climb up there for their wedding night.

The next day, Mercution and Benvolio meet Tybalt who has challenged Romeo to a duel because he crashed the party. Romeo comes and wants peace with Tybalt until Tybalt knows that Romeo is actually now his kinsman. Mercution is disgused by this and startes fighting Tybalt in his own. Mercutio is killed by Tybalt and as a revenge Romeo kills Tybalt. Romeo then leaves because he is banished from Verona by the Prince for his crime. The next morning Romeo leaves to Mantua.When the nurse tells Juliet what happened she is at first shocked but then forgets Romeo for this and wants to continue in their relationship. So, there is one more night to go until Romeo has to leave and what does he do? He is with Juliet the whole night and they make love.

After Romeo leaves for Mantua Juliet learns that due to teh recent events, her father decided to go through with the wedding of Juliet and Paris. This however cannot happen because Juliet is already marries but she is too afraid to say so. She comes for advice to her nurse, who says that she should forget about Romeo and marry Paris. Juliet is disgusted by this and so she goes for advice to Friar Lawrence. He than arranges a secret plan how to get Romeo and Julie back together. The plan is that the night because Juliet is supposed to marry Paris she will drink a special potion that will make her appear dead. She then will be put to peace and Friar Lawrence later on together with Romeo will come and get her alive and she can life the rest of her life with Juliet. The next they Juliet goes on with this plan but the letter from Friar Lawrence to Romeo explaining the whole situation never arrives to Mantua. Romeo only hears that Juliet is dead.

Romeo does not want to live without Juliet so he buys poison and goes to see Juliet tomb. In front of the tomb we meet Paris and they get into fight. Romeo then kills Paris. Afterwards, he layes next to Juliet where he drinks the posion and dies. In that moment Juliet wakes up, sees that Romeo is dead and stabs herself with a dagger. When both families see this, they decide to finally declare peace between each other.
