“Cut!” The director walked in front of the camera completely exasperated. He pushed his fingers through his dark hair in an effort to calm down. “Dale, do I honestly have to keep telling you this? Romeo does not get on the balcony with Juliet. He is talking to her over it.”

Dale just shrugged his shoulders. “I know what it says on the script, but I think it would make more sense for him to get on the balcony to get close to Juliet.”

Marie, who played Juliet, turned her head towards her co-worker. “Really? You think he’d want to climb onto a balcony so he is inside his enemy’s house? They are trying to keep their relationship a secret.”

“Yeah, but he is young and with youth comes recklessness. In my opinion, that is exactly what he would do.”

The exhausted director sat down in his chair and rubbed his temples. “I don’t care what you think, Dale. You are here to do what I am telling you so get yourself on the other side to the balcony and please given us five minutes where we manage to stick to the script!”

Under his breath, he added, “Bloody actors!”
