    I need help coming up with drama ideas for my performance. The stimulus is 'looking back/looking forward'. My group had the idea what if Romeo and Juliet didn't commit suicide, but we don't know how to develop the idea. Any help please

    Hey,

    is this GCSE?
    I would say that doesn't really suit the stimulus...
    If I were you I would do something based on expressionism with flashbacks so that you can visually take the audience back and forth in time - crimes are a good starting point if this is the case!

    Well, a good way to approach this would be to go through the script and see what point you want to break away from the original story. Do you want to make it so Romeo and Juliet are together, or so Juliet marries Paris, or she wakes up to find Romeo isn't there at all, after faking her death? Think about this and then built up the story around it. A consequence you could include is that the Capulets and the Montagues never made up, and are therefore still at war with each other. What could you do with that?

    Hope this helped x
