VO: Welcome to Workshop Six, Love and War

Love inspires more poems and songs and stories and art than any other human emotion… and for some people, love means risking it all—even when faced with another powerful human emotion: hate. In this workshop, we’ll look at what happens when love brings people together, but their differences threaten to tear them apart. First, you’ll read a poem about a young couple that struggled to stay together against the odds. Then you’ll read a re-telling of the classic story of doomed love, Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet.” With its timeless and powerful themes of love and hate, this play is read and performed more today than it was when it was written hundreds of years ago. Our video story is about a forbidden relationship between two teenagers in Mississippi. Is their love strong enough to overcome the hate in their small town? You’ll find out.

VO: Reading One: Barriers

Gary Soto is a Mexican-American poet who was born in 1952 and grew up in California. When he was a young man he fell in love with a Japanese-American woman. His relationship inspired him to write a poem called “Barriers.” In the poem, the couple’s parents don’t approve of their relationship. When you read it, think about what kind of barriers would be strong enough to keep two people apart.

VO: Reading Two: Romeo and Juliet

The classic story of two young people who risk everything to be together, Romeo and Juliet]was written over four hundred years ago by William Shakespeare, whom many consider to be the greatest writer in the English language. Shakespeare began writing in the 1500s, so his work is full of language you don’t hear much anymore—words like “thee”—meaning you—and “’tis” –meaning it is—and “wherefore”—meaning why. Here’s what happens in the story: The Montagues and the Capulets are two powerful families at the center of the drama. The families hate each other. Romeo is a Montague and Juliet is a Capulet. One night, Romeo and his friend sneak into a party at the Capulets, a party they have not been invited to. Romeo and Juliet fall in love the moment their eyes meet. They love each other so much they’ll do anything to be together. Their families hate each other so much they’ll do anything to keep them apart. Which side wins—love or hate? Read the story to find out.
