Incomplete Shakespeare: Romeo & Juliet

Author: John Crace

Publisher: Transworld

Cease I say, cantankerous old fools /
Thy deeds hath made our streets a no go zone /
No more shall Montagues and Capulets /
Enact their West Side Story Sharks and Jets /
Or else shall pay the forfeit of the peace.

To celebrate the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death, this is the second of a new collection of the Bard’s greatest plays, digested to a few thousand words with invaluable footnotes from John Sutherland. Funny and incredibly clever, these parodies are a joy for those who know their Shakespeare, perfect for the theatre goer needing a quick recap, and a massive relief for those just desperate to pass their English exam.
