In this Q&A we caught up with the son of the well – known Montague family, Romeo!! Montague is famous as the enemy of Capulets, who’ve been fighting on the streets of Verona many times… There’re lots of rumours about Romeo’s secret romantic relationship with someone, and the murder of Tybalt Capulet by Romeo is fresh in Verona’s mind. If you have any questions or wonder about him, this is it – this Q&A answers all the questions you have! Everything he thinks about the Capulets and Montagues, Everything about the naughty things he’s done so far… So, let’s move onto the Q&A!!

1) There’ve been many fights between Montagues and Capulets. What do you think?
There’re many violent fights between us and Capulet, and my dad really hates Capulets so he’s quite intense to fight against Capulets, and so Benvolio and Mercutio are. But, I’m not interested and don’t care about that, so there’s not a lot of thing that I can talk about the conflict between us and Capulets. The only thing  I can say about the fight, is that we should stop fighting. I think fight doesn’t solve anything, but they should discuss to find the solution.
2) Are you proud of being a Montague even though you’re not involved in a fight?
Yeah, I do love my family, no matter whether I’m interested in a conflict or not.
3) There’s rumours that you’re in romantic relationship with Juliet Capulet. Is it true?
Yeah, that’s true. I first met her in the Capulet ball, when I sneaked in with my servants,  Benvolio, and Mercutio. I saw her dancing with another man, and she was so beautiful that she’d make his hand richer. I felt a powerful pull towards her.
4) If so, what do you think about her?
When I met her for the first time, I was overwhelmed by her beauty, and I was so deeply in love with her that after the Capulet ball I sneaked into her house to meet and talk to her.
5) What was your first impression when you met her for the first time?
I fell in love with her at first sight, that I quickly and completely forgot about Rosaline, my former girlfriend. When I met Juliet in the ball, I was depressed and heartbroken because even though I loved Rosaline she didn’t even had her interest in me at all.
6) Do your family members know that you’re in love with her?
I think Benvolio and Mercutio know, because they were with me in the Capulet ball. But I hope my parents don’t know, because I’m in love with a girl from my father’s worst rival family.
7)  If not, do you want to get married with her even though you’re not supposed to?
 I do, regardless of unstable family relationship between Montague and Capulets. As I said before, it’s  weird, but I don’t actually care about the conflict or fight between two families, even though I live in middle of violent feud. And yeah, I really do  want to stay with her for rest of my life.
8) Is she your ideal type?
Yes, she is my ideal type. She has every component of type I like. I like everything about her. She is extremely beautiful that’s too good for everyday use, and too variable for the earth. I also like the way she talks to me. When I talk to her she responds me in similar way as me so I really feel connected to her.
9) Sorry to ask you, but why did you kill Tybalt Capulet? Is it the reason why you’re banished from Verona?
The reason why I killed Tybalt, is because he killed Mercutio. I was trying to defend and save him, but I couldn’t, and that was very unacceptable for me, so I killed him as punishment for killing Mercutio. Yeah, because of that, the prince banished me from Verona.





















Drama: Evaluation of Kento and Solon’s box set


Our concept of box set is quite straight forward, simple, but it’s easy to understand and grab atmosphere and mood of their houses in the Intruder. We decided to choose the proscenium stage, because it has open space, and it’s also easy to see what is happening, and also to put some windows and other extra furniture. We also tried to have as much space as possible for actors since they move quite a lot to open windows etc. We placed the table around the center and down right, in order to make audiences focus on the table. Considering about the furnitures, we put the Dutch Clock,door and windows on the wall, based on the story (script), and lights around the table to light up the table so this enables to create some shadows and show actors’ facial expressions. However, I do not think that furnitures look realistic and 1800s’, but I still think that we can still grab some sense of this stage.  This room has 7 chairs because there are 7 characters who appear in the play. The atmosphere that is being created in this stage is kind of barren plain, and simple, in order to show the simple atmosphere in house in countryside around 1800s., which is our locational setting in our set. However, the furnitures are not that detailed, but I still think that we still managed to show the atmosphere in 1800s. The colour we used in this model is brownish colour (the colour of cardboard box) in order to show the simplicity of houses in 1800s. However brown is considered as a warm colour so even though the colour on the wall doesn’t 100% look brown, this could make the people inside the stage feel warm, relaxed, and motivated. We used this colour (brownish colour) because around 1800s most of colours of floor had warm colours and furnitures, so we also used warm colour for Dutch Clock (brownish and white to have some contrast and make it look more interesting) and door (purple, because I thought that purple would fit with brownish colour, and to have more contrast and make it look more interesting) well, but not for the table and chairs in order to emphasise the existence and have some contrast to make our model look more visually interesting, because without that there will be no contrast and the model will look way too plain and barren. It is also interesting to note that in 1891, when this play was released, the Carnegie hall opened in NY, and first act of this was taken place in Paris, not in Belgium (where the author is from) so Carnegie hall might have effected the author to show the first act in big city like Paris. The repetition in our model is light. This is because even though we were able to put 1 huge one to light up the stage and also for interior, we decided to put 4 lights so that we can show the actors’ facial expression, and we can leave out many shadows to maybe hide some deeper meanings of the play. The contrast in this model can be the use of different colour in furnitures. For the table and chairs, we used the white colour, and for the door we used the purple colour. We did this because we thought that those colours will fit well with brownish floor and wall, but the biggest reason for that is because to make our model look a bit more interesting and to harmonise well with floors and wall. In terms of unity, I think that unity is quite good, even thought the furnitures don’t look realistic. This is because the floor and walls all have the same colour, and it’s same for table, chairs, and clock as well. There is no furniture that have the same colour as the door, but I still think that the unity is good enough since they can go well with each other. We decided not to put the stairs, because we figured out that the stair can be behind the door.
