But Soft, written by David Clow

As two teenagers butcher their way through Romeo and Juliet, the spirits of the characters try to help the high school actors find their own inner passion and re-ignite the passion in the lines Romeo and Juliet have said thousands of times since 1590.

The Bold and the Richer Than You, written by Michael Johnson

When the ghost of Shakespeare is pulled into a modern-day soap opera, how long can the director stand the Bard’s bombastic tongue before she fires him…or kills him?

Always Paris, written by Liam Callanan

Two high school students try to gather up the courage to go to Prom and perhaps spend the rest of their lives together, while in rehearsals for the school play, “Romeo & Juliet.”

Shakespeare in Hate, written by Jacob Kempfert

Shakespeare’s agent wants the Bard to update his writing to put more fighting, more comedy and more sex in his plays.

“That’s What She Sayeth!” A Game Show with Prizes!
