Script for presentation on Romeo and Juliet

In english, we had to do a presentation on a scene from R+J and my group chose the death scene... i have uploaded our script because it contains loads of key points about Plot, Structure, Dramatic Devices, charachters and Relations, Language and Layers of Meaning. we presented it with two people acting out a short extract, two people making points about it as if they were from the past and then two people giving points just like they would in the present day. It worked really well and we got A*s on our speaking and listening but these points will also come in handy for any essays... hope they are as useful as i made them sound:P :S

brought back to life, her killing herself could make true that at least they did
end up together."
