Shakespeare’s R&J

A Kill Your Television production
Shakespeare’s R&J
by Joe Calarco

SHAKESPEARE’S R&J is the story of four male Catholic prep-school students, who break away from their regimented lives and secretly meet to read Romeo and Juliet, a play banned because of its sexuality and violence. The boys are quickly swept away by the story’s vibrancy and vitality. However the fun of the play-acting turns serious when two of the young men emerge in the title roles. Perceptions are challenged and love is redefined in this queer adaptation of Shakespeare’s classic tale of star-crossed lovers.

Featuring: Oscar Derkx, Luc Tellier, Braydon Dowler-Coltman, & Corben Kushneryk
