Thank goodness. I can’t even start to critique this around relatives (odd since I read the play and they didnt). My biggest issue is that Romeo was exiled and Juliet was to either marry Paris or be disowned. Basically shunned just as Romeo already was. Instead of being cast out and never seeing family or friends again to be with him, she would rather play dead and never speak to family or friends again to be with him. Had her little plan actually worked it still would’ve been a lot of extra effort for the same outcome. I was so much smarter at 13.
