We are creating a web series based on the classic play of William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet (1597). The series will be a loose adaptation of the classic tale and divided in 7 parts, it will follow different characters from the original story and explore issues of race, gender and sexuality. The twist of this production is that all characters will be either from African or Asian ethnicity and both Romeo and Juliette are girls coming from different social background.

Audition / Rehearsal / Production dates

Auditions to be held between the 14th- 27th of January 2019

Production dates start on the 4th-17th of March 2019
