Romeo & Juliet
This is the good old ROMEO AND JULIET you know and love, but about 500 years in the future, with light swords, the internet, robots, and some references to all the ROMEO AND JULIET fanfiction that has accreted over the centuries. I also added a secret plot layer that only super-literary nerds are going to notice. It gets even better: it even has a Karate Jesus character!
Yes, I ran it by some Shakespeare scholars to see what they thought… and after some hard work and study, I’d like to say that I think I identified all the sacred cows …and murdered them all.
All for your literary (and visual) amusement!
Dodge the heavy books, get a lighter reading experience
Have you ever been so angry at being forced to read something that you wrote a 35,000-word response to a 28,000-word text?

Well, after spending decades as an obsessive comedy nerd, I finally decided to put some pants on and write my own little satire.
If you can imagine a scrawny little comedy-nerd cramming 20+ years of an obsessive joke collecting into one play, you’re kind of getting the picture.
All those late nights devouring obscure animated comedies... and all those late nights devouring even more obscure improv sketches... They’re all in here, ready to offer you a truly fresh, witty and fun whole new experience of ROMEO AND JULIET!
