Romeo and Juliet
For your next written task, you are going to create an adaptation of a specific scene in Act II – the scene from Scene III where Romeo and Friar Lawrence have a detailed conversation.
An adaptation is the adapting of a literary source (e.g. a novel, short story, poem) to another genre or medium, such as a film, stage play, or video game. It can also involve adapting the same literary work in the same genre or medium, just for different purposes, e.g. to modernize the work.
- Imagine how Romeo and Friar Lawrence’s conversation in Act II would be different today.
- Rewrite this scene in modern English.
- The plot should not change, only the way it is written (Think about the setting. Are they in Toronto or Barcelona?).
