Summary: Juliet, a Pro-Life feminist, falls for Romeo (an atheist) when he and a group of street poets disrupt her women’s Bible study. She tries to stop his girlfriend Rosalind from having an abortion after Romeo lands on death row for defending his gay friends from Tybalt (trapped in a coma until Lady Capulet learns to let go). In the meantime Paris harasses Juliet sexually (and Romeo religiously) until the very end when all couples get married in time for the patriotic finale celebrating freedom of expression -- political, religious, artistic, or otherwise. The forces of chaos explode with a bang in the climactic court scene where the Montagues plea with the judge for clemency for their son, the Capulets order the play director to change the script to kill off Romeo, and the feminist playwright insists on a happy ending where the families mediate.

NOTE: Since all the dialogue is set to music, it is easier to follow with the tape recording which I send free to actors who wish to form a troupe. Send your mailing address by e-mail to isocracy99@hotmail.com or by postcard to:
