New Ending Act V, Scene III Verona. A churchyard; the monument of the Capulets. Enter Romeo and Paris. Paris This is that banished haughty Montague, That murdered my love's cousin, with which grief It is supposed that fair creature died, And here is come to do some villainous shame To the dead bodies. I will apprehend him. Stop thy unhallowed toil vile Montague.
Can vengeance be pursued further than death? Condemned villi an, I do apprehend thee. Obey and go with me, for thou must die. Romeo must indeed, and therefor came I hither, Good gentle youth, tempt not a desperate man For thou nor any man shall prevent me from being with my love tonight, Put not another sin upon my head By urging me to fury. O be gone For I shall know not what I do but rather do what I must madman's mercy bid thee, run away. ParisI defy thee! For thou hast done my love great injustice. Romeo Her love is mine! Your love she shall never be! [they fight][Paris is slain]Romeo Forgive me good sir For again, I know not what I do Inside the tomb of CapuletRomeoO Fair Juliet why must thou torture me so For even in death thy beauty is paralleled only by the stars in the sky.
O Lord what great injustice hast thou done to thee For my love is gone And no greater crime against me can thou think of. Tis our families' to blame Not us. For they are blinded by tradition and driven by hatred. O but it matters not.
Soon shall I be with thee and soon shall I once again be merry, For to live forth be not true life but hell. Only is life with thee heaven. And alas, A choice have I, Heaven, or Hell? Ha! you must be jest, a question for the fools is this. Heaven is thine choice! Fair Juliet, as this vile poison shall pass through thine lips, I think not of death, but light, of heavenly divine That shall greet eth me once I have gone And her name be Juliet.
[Romeo brings poison to his lips]Juliet Halt! Gentle Romeo, the lord call you not. For the death that hast become me, be no more than a mask that I wearRomeoCan it be true? Fair Juliet lives? O thank the lord! A love as great as thine can not be grasped even by Deaths icy hand! For it looks death in the face and laughs! Juliet Dear love Tis true this occasion is a merry one Yet I fear happiness be here not. Hark, something yonder is astir [enter Friar Laurence]Friar Laurence Thank the heavens a thousand fold For it twas the worst that I feared for thee Lucky are you the lord be by your side But haste must be made both houses of Capulet and Montague come hither And joining them be none other than Prince. I bid thee, flee from this place of death For this godforsaken city bring thee no justice nor righteousness, Fashioned were the walls of Verona to house the devil's minions And that it does. And so begone or thou shalt meet thy fate! Juliet Dear Friar the lord himself be in you So good a man deserve not be in such a place as you speak of So pray I for thee to one day be amongst men of esaul greatness And so Farewell good man Pray I our paths will cross in better days[exit Romeo and Juliet][enter Prince, Capulet, and Montague]Prince Good Friar, Mistaken am I to say you know of the events taken place In this house of death Friar Laurence Before thou can know that of the present Thou shalt learn that of the past Romeo be husband to her Juliet Married them I did, and yet their secret wedding day Was also Tybalt's doomsday. And faithful wife Juliet be was to wed to County Paris And then with incredible sorrow, Thou bid me devise some mean to rid Her of this second marriage Or slay herself immediately say she.
A sleeping potion of thine own creation Was to be her relief Though I writ to Romeo biding him to come hither To awake the sleeping Juliet this night, Fail did he to receive it. So upon receiving my own letter back I rushed hither To prevent the worst from occuring. Prince And what be of Romeo now? Capulet And what be of Juliet, her body lay, did she wake? Friar Laurence... Slain be them bothMontagueAnd by who's hand? Friar Laurence Pass Paris's body did you not? Prince We did Friar Laurence As Romeo arrived to see his departed love Followed he was by Paris whom was extremely angered At Romeos presence at his fiance's grave Challenged Romeo to a duel As fighting began Juliet rushed to stop it the blade of Paris delivered a death blow To fair Juliet instead of Romeo Enraged at the loss of his love Romeo Slew Paris then turned The blade to heart of his own and ran himself through. Paris And where be the bodies of Juliet and Romeo? Friar Laurence Buried, yonder Beneath those tress, Together be they, in death and in life.
