Modern Romeo And Juliet - A Humor Script

By Author: Douglas Walker
Total Articles: 40

This script is a humorous take on the classical hit "Romeo and Juliet" by Shakespeare. The particular style is adopted to add more effect in characterization, sentences and setting. This is a one-scene script, with the opening and ending sentences show the century in which it was written to the modern day.
Fade in.
For trust and love, you and us, we talk about lovers, those whose names are writ on cupid's heart.
INT. ROMEO HOME- MORNING
Young and handsome Romeo, sad and deserted looking, has one hand underneath his chin and other on his lap. He appears in a thinking mode.
Why did I eat the forbidden apple? O Juliet! The apple of love.
EXT. JULIET HOME- SAME MORNING
Lovely and fairy-like Juliet walks in a beautiful garden, clouds overhead, and tears on her cheeks.
Damn Cupid, Oh I'm in love. My Romeo, come to my rescue for I'd live no more. Oh, the anti-human Satan, who strives to destroy the entire human race by virtue of hate. My family and his, are brutal enemies.
A pause.
EXT. UNKNOWN PLACE- A WEEK LATER- EVENING
The cruel air strikes the dead bodies of a handsome man and a lovely girl, lying above one another, fluttering their blood-colored clothes. The clouds are red, the still coldness of this evening makes everything foggy. In sheer, silence we hear sounds of wings.
EXT.SAME PLACE- CONTINUOUS
V.O CUPID
O My! O MY!
Cupid, a creature with two white fluttering wings, flies near to the dead bodies.
You died in the name of love, for love... My promise shall be to you, the Believes of love, till the day when there will be hate everywhere. Your names will be kissed by every true lover's lips. Your story will be sung by every follower of me. You are the martyrs of true love. Farewell!
Cupid vanishes.
A pause.
EXT. UNKNOWN PLACE- PRESENT DAY 2011
A guy and a girl, Romeo and Juliet, lie motionless like dead bodies. Suddenly, Romeo jumps up, looks here and there, smokes a cigarette and sleeps again. Juliet smiles, and hands him some heroic chocolate. The bottle of red soda, soaking their clothes, is almost finished. Both look in each others eyes and slowly kiss, a french kiss. An intense police siren shocks them and they runaway leaving some clothes behind.
V.O CUPID
Put 'em Behind bars, Officer. Please! Chase them!
We hear the police siren fading.
Fade out.
Regards
