Directed by Liana Olear
Shakespeare's words and a modern setting combine to retell that old story of a young person employing wits, courage, friendship and questionable ethics to win a noble marriage. (The girl is the protagonist and the boy the reluctant prize; the plot is driven by female agency in a way all too rare in stories both classic or modern, raising questions of how gender is performed, and with what consequences).
