Romeo & Juliet: PROLOGUE


( Echoing voices grow in volume ) ( a rythmic drum beat plays throughout ) Two households both alike in dignity in fair Verona, where we lay our scene. From ancient grudge break to new mutiny where civil blood makes civil hands unclean. From forth the fatal loins of these two foes a pair of star-cross’d lovers take their life whose misadventured piteous overthrows do with their death bury their parents’ strife. The fearful passage of their death mark’d love and the continuance of their parents’ rage which but their children’s end nought could remove is now the two hours’ traffic of our stage. The which if you with patient ears attend what here shall miss, our toil shall strive to mend. ( electric guitar plays ) ( rock music fades out )
