Romeo & Juliet Revisited

Synopsis
Comedy short which imagines what might have happened if Romeo and Juliet had feigned their deaths to gain peace and quiet.`A re-staging of the final scene in Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet kicks off our comedy. After the wailing, gnashing of teeth and rending of 16th century ready-to-wear, the lights go down and the two, supposedly dead teens pop back up... having staged their own deaths to get a little peace from the prying eyes of parents, friars and audience alike. The fact that they’ve made peace between their two families is just a perk. Now the two are off to live secret, romantic lives in the bucolic splendor that is Mantua’.
