Premiered at the Johns Creek Shakespeare Festival (Johns Creek, GA).
William Shakespeare has seen the future, and it isn't pretty. It's full of sound and fury, and the last thing it needs is a play about two beautiful young people killing themselves. So he sets about rewriting his beloved tragedy. After a series of false starts that include—among others—a high school guidance counselor, a Dickensian urchin and a bereaved puppy, with the help of his wife, Anne, he finally finds the perfect ending for his play.
