Mercutio - Pleurothallis restrepioides (Ecuador) Poise, humour and verbal repartee are the hallmarks of Mercutio, the marvelous character in the play, Romeo and Juliet. Good for those who are taking things (or themselves) too seriously; good for students who are being bullied. Stand back from drama, get the overview, like the director of a play and watch the interplay between actors and dialogue. Enjoy the movement of words and meaning. Brings white light into the eyes, so it is recommended if one has been reading a great deal.
