Act 1, Scene 4:
Location: Outside Capulet’s House
Characters: Romeo, Benvolio, Mercutio
Time: Sunday Evening
Events: Romeo talk about how love isn’t all fine and fun but instead rough and sharp like thorns. He says love isn’t giving him cupid’s wings and soaring but instead he is sinking like a ship. They discuss about dreams and how a fairy witch delivers them to you in a hazelnut cart and how dreams can express your future. Romeo has a bad dream and believes it will happen to him.
Quotes: “I fear too early, for my mind misgives. Some consequence yet hanging in the stars. Shall bitterly begin his fearful date. With this night’s revels, and expire the term. Of a despised life clos’d in my breast. By some vile forfeit of untimely death. But He that hath the steerage of my course. Direct my sail! On, lusty gentlemen.
