OMG Shakespeare

Here’s a video to share before the books are released tomorrow. Hamlet & Romeo and Juliet, two of the greatest stories ever told…in texts?!

Two Shakespeare plays told through its characters texting with emojis, checking in at certain locations, and updating their relationship statuses.A glossary and cast of characters are included for those who need it. For example: tl;dr means too long; didn’t read.

A clever gift idea for any teen, theater geek, hipster, or Bard lover: Srsly Hamlet by William Shakespeare, Courtney Carbone and Yolo Juliet by William Shakespeare, Brett Wright.
