Re: Juliet and Romeo (Shakespeare in America)
Romeo was a blind man in a night club which was also a strip club in a small city when Juliet asked him, "Can you see?"
"Not what I would like to see. Only darkness," said Romeo.
"There is not alot of light in these sort of places," said Juliet.
"Take my address," said Romeo handing Juliet a card.
"Why?" asked Juliet.
"Because you don't see the light either," said Romeo. "Perhaps we could be friends."
Juliet then turned up at Romeo's door the next day where he gave her another card. This card contained his whole name.
"Romeo Montague," said Juliet reading the card outloud. "Sorry I am a Capulet. Juliet Capulet."
"Is that something I should have seen?" asked the blind Romeo.
"No. What is in a name other than our parents?" said Juliet.
"Blood of an old stupid fued," said Romeo about the years of war between their families which constantly errupted into bar room and school yard fights, grocery store food fights, tire slashings, mail box smashings, window crackings, injury, incarcerations, and worse. "Will you come in and have some tea?" Romeo asked Juliet.
