This study of Romeo and Juliet focuses on the play as a series of topics, rather than adopting a chronological approach. Jackson sees the play as working through a series of dilemmas and choices which derive their potency from the vividness and poetic force of the figures portrayed, which in turn depends on how those characters are represented on stage. The portrayal of the two warring households of Capulet and Montague sets up the context for the ensuing action, but the key roles are of course the lovers, about whom the script is less than informative. Are they played as adolescents or are they idealized? If the Juliet is convincingly youthful, has she also the technique and insight to succeed in her role? How can an actor deal effectively with Romeo's moodiness and swift changeability?

Their servants were enemies as well. The young men who work for the Montagues and the Capulets get into gangs and fight each other in the street.

Montague has only one child, a teenage boy called Romeo. Capulet also has only one child, a beautiful 14-year-old daughter called Juliet. They do not know each other, because Juliet never goes anywhere without her nursemaid. Romeo and his friends go to a masked ball at the home of Juliet's parents.
