Love and Hate
Review of Romeo y Julieta presented by Seattle Shakespeare Company
Written by William Edwardsar during an Arts Criticism workshop at Glacier Middle School
Everyone should see Romeo y Julieta because it is a play about love and hate. The play Romeo y Julieta is about two families who dislike each other—but within those two families are Romeo and Julieta who meet at a party and fall in love with each other.
One element that made the play about love and hate was the props. During the play, when Juliet woke up to see that Romeo had drunk the poison, she was trying to find a knife to kill herself because she couldn’t live in a world without Romeo.
Another element that made the play about love and hate was the acting. During the play, when the characters were fighting, it showed a lot of action between the two families as they fought it out, showing how the characters of the two families felt about each other. In conclusion, the play Romeo y Julieta should be seen by everyone because of the action and love that the characters portray in the play.
