Written by a teacher who is also a best-selling author, Star-crossed is a modern version of Romeo and Juliet which updates Shakespeares classic play in a very entertaining fashion. In some ways it is faithful to the original text, providing a modern translation for every speech in the play. However, it uses poetic licence to make Shakespeares language accessible to teenagers and adults: for example, bad language has been used when appropriate to the dialogue.

This playscript is not suitable for children under the age of fifteen. After reading this modern translation, youll understand and appreciate Shakespeares text that much more.
