Ro-emo & Juliet

The script was lost long ago; everyone thinks it's an act
Nobody will come to their aid—they must find their own ending
Intertwined

Ro-emo & Juliet is a modern retelling of Romeo and Juliet dealing with themes such as oppression, the gap between the rich and the poor, and LGBT+ rights. I have no set design for any of the characters because it is a play designed to be performed by anyone. It can be read on Google Drive, tumblr, and deviantArt.
