Lost in Shakespeare


A play written by J Roth for and presented with Harmony Theatre as part of the 2011 Minnesota Fringe Festival.

Hamlet seeks no vengeance? Juliet despises Romeo? What’s happening here?

When the Ghost of Hamlet’s Father inadvertently wanders into their home, two students are drawn into an adventure beyond their wildest dreams. With the help of their budding wizard friend, they are able to transport themselves into Shakespeare’s plays. They discover that Grophilias (devious creatures of unknown origin) have infested Shakespeare’s works and are out to mislead the characters into doing things that will ruin the stories.

Who is the mastermind behind this sinister plot? And why?
The students race through the plays of “Macbeth”, “Hamlet”, “Richard III”, and “Romeo & Juliet” trying to save Shakespeare’s great works before they’re destroyed forever by a conniving villain and his minions.
