Romeo and Juliet – Act 4.1

Characters
Paris, Friar Laurence, Juliet

The gist
As Paris is making arrangements with Friar Laurence to perform the wedding ceremony between himself and Juliet, she appears. Juliet says that she will kill herself rather than marry Paris, and the Friar comes up with the plan for her to take a drug which will make her appear dead for 42 hours, so that the wedding will be called off and Romeo can come and take her to Mantua

Quotations
“bid me go into a new-made grave, And hide me with a dead man in his shroud…” – Juliet p201
