"Because a story is worth a thousand words."
In this two-act play, written for teenage and community
theater groups, young Hamlet has lost his dog, Romeo. With
the help of a cast of Shakespeare characters from several of
the Bard's plays and a tongue-in-cheek spoof on all that is
Shakespearean, Hamlet sets out in search of Romeo. On a
dark night, however, he is confronted by Romeo's ghost,
who not only confirms that he was "dognapped," but also
that he was poisoned. Through a series of famous
Shakespearean scenes, Hamlet and his friends set out in
search of the culprit, in what becomes a clue-ridden who-
done-it. As the play shifts from scene to scene, two film
critics (Siskelette and Eberta) provide running commentary
and comic relief, helping the audience—especially those less
versed in Shakespeare's works—recognize the parody in the
play's scenes. "Where Art Thou, Romeo?" was accepted for
performance by the Heart and Home Theater Group of
Boone, Iowa, for performance in 2008.
