Straight after that, Romeos first encounter with Juliet takes place; making the atmosphere very loving and pleasant.
He quickly decides she is perfect and that he simply must have her. Juliet would not be used to this kind of treatment, being such a sheltered child; she quickly falls In love with Romeo. She Is upset when she finds out his true identity, but decides it does not matter because she loves him. The structure of these changes keeps the audience on their toes, they never quite ‘Off know what is going to happen next . One moment they’re expecting a nappy, yet tort the most part, calm party; then they are lead to believe Romeo may be killed or hurt that very night.

The audience are more aware of the difference between characters in this scene. They are shown how volatile Table’s temper is, how easily Romeo convinces himself he is in love and how calm and accepting Old Caplet is.
This difference in attitudes shows the potentially fatal mix for what it is; a recipe for disaster. The audience are likely to see Romeo as the hero or victim of the story along with Juliet.

He speaks to Table calmly and cheerily at first; then when Table disagrees. Caplet tells him off in a demeaning manor. “What, Goodman boy, I say he shall, go to!
Am I the master here, or you? Go to! You’ll not endure him? God shall mend my soul, you’ll make a mutiny among my guests! ” This shows Old Caplet to have more power in the family than Table does. This could either be because of Old Caplet’s age compared to Table’s or be because they are inside Caplet’s mansion. He is the master of the house and therefore of anyone in it; including his own relatives, this would make the audience wonder how he would react if he knew about Romeo and Gullet’s love.

In Shakespearean theatre; there was very little space. A large room, crowded with party guests would somehow have to be an illusion. Shakespeare may have accomplished this by having painted backgrounds where there may have been painted fugues dancing in the back drop.
Creating the feeling of a large room, the atmosphere of a party also may have been created by one or two pairs of dancers waltzing behind the actors who are speaking. Music may also have been used to help add to the atmosphere of this. Also Shakespeare uses the actor’s dialogue to suggest things are happening, Old Caplet says “Welcome gentlemen! Ladies that have their toes unplanned with corns will walk a bout with you,” this suggests he was speaking too large group of people. In conclusion this is a very crucial scene to the play, because it makes the recipe for disaster more obvious.
This is the start of the chain; without this scene the others tolling it could not nave taken place .
