Act 4 Scene 1
Friar Lawrence’s plan:
Juliet is to go to sleep alone on Wednesday night and drink the potion Friar Lawrence gave her. The potion will slow down her heart rate and make her appear dead with cold, pale skin, the effect will last 42 hours. On Thursday morning the Capulets will see Juliet and think she is dead, her seemingly dead body will be taken to the Capulet’s family tomb and left there. Friar Lawrence will inform Romeo of the plan and when she wakes the two will be awaiting her in the vault. Romeo and Juliet will then have the chance to escape. She must be brave if the plan is going to succeed.
