Theatre review by Irina Balaci

One of the best plays I’ve seen is „Romeo and Juliet” by William Shakespeare. It is a drama about hatred between families and a magical love that has to fight in order to become possible.

The story is set in England, around 1700. The plot revolves around two rich families. Montague and Capulet which couldn’t stand eacheother because of political problems. Juliet was a Capulet and Romeo was a Montague but, despite their families’ problems, they fell in love. They had to fight until the end for this love and, in the end, they died for it.

The main characters are Romeo and Juliet. The two youngsters can’t be happy together because of their families. They are very strong and powerful, they argue with their relatives to protect their feelings for eachother and, in the end, they realise that the only way to be together is to die. After that, nobody can tell them how to feel.

What I liked very much in this play were the costumes: the women wore long dresses and the men trousers, shirts and waistcoats. These were the traditional outfits at that period.

To sum up, I would throughly recommend this play to anyone who wants romance, drama and action in the same place, to anyone who wants to discover what true love can do and how much a person can fight for love or to anyone who wants to be challenged and made to think about hatered and love.
