LADY CAPULET

 

Testimony:

L: Please introduce yourself to the court

LC: I am Lady Capulet, the wife of Lord Capulet. Juliet was my daughter.

L: What was your husband’s state of mind after Juliet’s faked death?

LC: He was distraught; Juliet was our only daughter. He wouldn’t come out of our room all night.

L: Who are the people in you house that he trusts the most?

LC: Myself and Juliet’s nurse.

L: And what were the two of you doing the night of Juliet’s actual death?

LC: We were comforting my husband, trying to get him in a better mood.

L: Was there anyone else there besides you and the nurse?

LC: Yes. Peter was there as well. He hardly ever leaves the nurse’s side.

P: I have worked alongside the nurse for many years, I know her very well.

L: What do you have to say about the nurse’s character?

P: She is the sweetest old woman in the world and she loved Juliet very much. She wouldn’t hurt a fly; all she did was defend Juliet. She wanted to help her recover from her mistakes, and watch her grow up.

L: Where were you the night of Juliet’s death?

P: I was with Lady Capulet and the nurse; we were trying to get Lord Capulet ro come out of his room.

NURSE

 

Testimony:

L: Please introduce yourself to the court.

N: I am… was… Juliet’s nurse.

L: What was your relationship with Juliet and the Capulets like?

N: I loved Juliet like I would have loved my own daughter, if she was still alive. I did not have as much of a relationship with Lord and Lady Capulet like I did with their daughter.

L: How did you discover Juliet that Thursday morning when she should have been married to Paris?

N: I went to wake her, but she wouldn’t wake up. Oh my dear sleeping Juliet! She just wouldn’t wake!

L: And where were you on the night of Juliet’s actual death?

N: I was with Lady Capulet and Peter, we spent the night tending to Lady Capulet while he was grieving over the death of his daughter.

L: How did you feel when Friar Lawrence told you the truth about what happened to Juliet?

N: I was shocked… Juliet never told me of her plan to fake her own death. I thought she was really dead. I wish she would have told me so I could have helped her!

L: Thank you, no further questions.
