ROMEO AND HAMLET
by R. JONATHAN CHAPMAN and KEVIN STEFAN
directed by SIDNEY J. BURGOYNE

Winner, 2005 Outstanding Original Script, CAT Awards (Canada)

A comedy on marriage equality in the style of William Shakespeare.  Romeo goes to the ball where he is soon to meet the beautiful young Juliet, but bumps into the dashing Prince Hamlet instead. Naturally, the two fall hopelessly in love. While Hamlet strives to juggle the pressures of his new-found love, his arch-conservative family, and his quest for revenge, he must also keep his secrets from the woman he is sworn to marry:  Hell hath no fury like a Juliet scorned.
