We’re here! It’s THE FIGHT SCENE. Possibly the most exciting – and certainly the most action packed – scene in the whole of Romeo and Juliet. This is where the tragedy begins to spiral out of control; this is where we first lose characters we have come to know so well...
We open Romeo and Juliet with two servingmen, Sampson and Gregory, trading insults with two Montague men and spoiling for a fight. Why open with a fight, not with our titular lovers, you may ask? Because of the family feud!
