Romeo and Juliet

The climax of a play is its most intensely emotional moment, when we know how the conflict will end. In a tragedy it is that moment when we feel overcome with horror, sadness, fear or regret. The climax of Shakespeare's plays always comes in the final act


when in this act would you say the climax of this play takes place? What were your feelings at this moment ?
