Juliet mosts likely to Friar Laurence, as well as he recommends a strategy that she take a medicine that will certainly make her appearance dead to make sure that she can creep away with Romeo. Friar Laurence sends out Friar John to Mantua with a message for Romeo.The time of day is vague, however it is not yet night due to the fact that Juliet states that she can return "at night mass" for her "admission" if Friar Laurence is active with Paris currently (lines 37-38).

Line 90: Friar Laurence claims that "Wednesday is tomorrow" which Juliet ought to take the medicine "tomorrow evening". Line 105: Friar Laurence claims that the medicine will certainly make her rest for "2 and also forty hrs" (practically 2 days).

Sufficient time has actually passed because the last scene for Balthasar to have actually shown up from Verona after having actually gone to Juliet"s burial place. The range in between the cities is 25 miles (40 kilometres). A steed can conveniently take a trip at 6 miles per hr, although racehorses can get to 30 miles per hour for brief ranges. So the journey may take less than 5 hrs. Line 26: Romeo informs Balthasar that "I will certainly thus this evening." Line 34: Romeo claims, "Juliet, I will certainly exist with thee this evening", which additionally suggests that the journey should take much less than a day.
