Dave and Chloe have two very different views on what the catalyst of the tragedy of R&J really was. On one hand, it is about love and the many faceted nature of love in storytelling – and, ultimately, the dangers of naive, unbridled love. On the other hand everything is fated to happen and nothing specifically is at fault except predetermination itself.
The classic trope – who is to blame? However, we’ve mixed this one up and taken a less traditional route. Expect uncommonly analysed scenes, and a deeper exploration into the text the Bard wrote himself!
