VIDEO: The Boys

This is a sample of the scenes you wrote and presented based on Act I, Scene i of Shakespreare’s Romeo and Juliet. Everyone was successful at maintaining the nuances of the meaning of the original script while adapting it for a contemporary ‘South London’ location. It’s a far cry from Verona, but not so far at all from Shakespeare’s own turf, after all.
