A parody retelling of the original story with contemporary language and a comedic bite.
Faithful to the original script, the greatest love story of all time is told yet again...kinda sorta. When an overdramatic lovesick crybaby Romeo falls in love with feuding family member straight-faced, Juliet, forbidden love (and comedy) ensues.
Written and Directed By Patrick Schmitz
Starring the Shakesparody Players
