Juliet has had enough! No more poison, stabbing, or dying. Romeo and Juliet will never be the same - or will it? Not everyone's so keen on the changes.

Juliet has had enough! Enough with the poison, enough with the stabbing, and especially enough with the dying. She wants a new story and she wants it now. More parts for girls! More romance! Less death!
Romeo and Juliet will never be the same - or will it? Not everyone's so keen on the changes. And why is Romeo sneaking off with Rosaline?

Our high school drama class performed Drop Dead, Juliet! The principal was so impressed with the production, that despite having only three hours sleep and planning to stay only twenty-minutes, she stayed for the entire show.
What impressed me the most about this play was that the students did what I asked them to do, which was to "own" the play. They just loved it so much and they had formed a very tight ensemble. They asked me if they could do the play one last time just for themselves. After it was over, everyone was very still and quiet for a minute, they knew that we had to let it go.
Thank you for such a high quality script, it gave the students such a worthwhile experience!
We have been using your scripts for a few years, after I met Lindsay Price at the EDTA convention.
Last year we performed Drop Dead, Juliet! at the International Thespian Festival.
I really like your scripts because they are timely, age-appropriate and don't have bad words in them.
I would like to inform you that after I purchased Drop Dead, Juliet! for the one-act I directed for Bothell High School's annual one act festival, that I won best play, best director, and many other awards for this show.
We will be attending the Washington State Thespian Festival this March to perform it and then possibly go on to nationals in Nebraska. This play is great and thank you for bringing this excellent opportunity to me!
