‘And he was saying things to her that he just said to me… three days ago.’

Though never seen in William Shakespeare’s 1597 tragedy, Rosaline’s rejection of Romeo (due to her being sworn to chastity) is what causes his depression and brings him to Juliet.

‘So you’re going to break them up?’ Nurse asks flatly.

Rosaline replies: ‘Of course I am. Romeo and Juliet, it doesn’t even sound right.’

Rosaline then enlists her friend Dario (Sean Teale), who doesn’t appear in the Italian-set play, to help ‘stop a wedding.’

‘Juliet, why settle down with just one man when you can sample at the buffet of life?’ she coyly asks.

Rosaline is then seen taking Juliet to a pub and the village men go wild after she asks: ‘Who wants to buy us some drinks?’

But Juliet catches on to her scheme, exclaiming: ‘All this time you just wanted to steal my boyfriend!’

Rosaline wisecracks: ‘I was trying to steal him back! There’s a difference.’

She’s then seen chatting with Paris (Spencer Stevenson), who seeks to marry Juliet, asking whether ‘all this drama is adding to the attraction.’

The preview also shows Juliet confessing her plan to fake her death by taking a magic potion to her cousin.

‘That is quite possibly the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard in my life,’ Rosaline scoffs.
