Shakespeare by the Flea

ROMEO
[To a Servingman – off scene] What lady is that, which doth
enrich the hand of yonder knight?

ROMEO
O, she doth teach the torches to burn bright!
It seems she hangs upon the cheek of night
Like a rich jewel in an Ethiope’s ear;
Beauty too rich for use, for earth too dear!
So shows a snowy dove trooping with crows,
As yonder lady o’er her fellows shows.
The measure done, I’ll watch her place of stand,
And, touching hers, make blessed my rude hand.
Did my heart love till now? forswear it, sight!
For I ne’er saw true beauty till this night.

Shakespeare by the Flea

ROMEO
[To JULIET] If I profane with my unworthiest hand
This holy shrine, the gentle fine is this:
My lips, two blushing pilgrims, ready stand
To smooth that rough touch with a tender kiss.

JULIET
Good pilgrim, you do wrong your hand too much,
Which mannerly devotion shows in this;
For saints have hands that pilgrims’ hands do touch,
And palm to palm is holy palmers’ kiss.

ROMEO
Have not saints lips, and holy palmers too?

JULIET
Ay, pilgrim, lips that they must use in prayer.
Shakespeare by the Flea

ROMEO
Then move not, while my prayer’s effect I take.
Thus from my lips, by yours, my sin is purged.

JULIET
Then have my lips the sin that they have took.

ROMEO
Sin from thy lips? O trespass sweetly urged!
Give me my sin again.

Shakespeare by the Flea

JULIET
You kiss by the book.

Pet policy
SBTS actors have been bitten during three separate performances. This is why SBTS strongly discourages your bringing your pets to the performances.

We know you love your pets, we love our pets too but we leave them at home during the performances. We hope you do too.

Not all parks allow pets, if you do choose to bring your dog please make sure to check the specific location’s park policies and rules whether city / county / state.

We’d loved to have you share your pets with us on SBTF VIRTUALLY, (online not in person.)
