Romeo and Juliet Act 2 Scenes 2
For our Romeo and Juliet project I had to choose between lots of different projects. I chose to make a shrine in a shoe box to try and show what happened in Act 2 Scene 2.

Romeo sees Juliet and they end up kissing and they fall in love but, falling in love was a bad idea because their families where enemies of each other. If their families were to find out that one of them were in love with the enemy they would probably be cut off from the family. But they loved each other so much that they didn’t care what could happen to them. Romeo was in the dark hoping to see Juliet; he was in her back yard watching as she stood on the balcony. When he heard her say that she would be willing to deny her father and her name just so that he could be with her he couldn’t hold himself back. He comes out and tells Juliet how he feels about her and they kiss again and eventually make plans to get married. I think that this decision is going to either stop these to families from hating each other, or it is going to make the hate each other even more, and there is no telling what they might do to Romeo and Juliet when they find out that they got married.
There were many different choices that I could have chose to show act 2 scene 2, but I chose to show the balcony scene in a show box. I thought that it would be the best way to try and display what I thought the author was picturing in his mind when he wrote the play, and the best way to show that was through the shrine.
