12 english, romeo and juliet
posted by amanda on .
can someone help me out in anyway possiable, it says create a modern scene with two to four characters based on a theme in a ROMEO AND JULIET. Devise a new situation, new setting, and new character names, but be faithful both to the theme from ROMEO AND JULIET and the basic personalities of the characters.
There are many versions of the Romeo and Juliet, including the popular "West Side Story." In many of these, two young people fall in love and want to marry even though their parents are strongly opposed.
Check Spark notes for other themes.
Reasons for parent and society disapproval could be ethnic, religious or class differences. It could be a gay or lesbian couple who want to dedicate their lives to each other. Or it could be a fundamental Christian wanting to marry a Muslim. The possibilities are almost endless.
