This American play began as a workshop production of tiny Manhattan based theater company, Expanded Arts, in 1997. After a rave review by the New York Times, the original transferred to Off-Broadway at the John Houseman Theater, where it ran until 1999.

Four schoolboys at a strict Catholic Boys’ School stumble across a forbidden copy of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet and act it out in secret. Nothing will ever be the same again.
