Romeo and Juliet As Told in a Series of Texts

Relativity Media

Credit:

If we’re being honest here, Romeo and Juliet is a bit of an excessive read considering the entire plot can be boiled down to "Boy and girl fall in love, six people die, it’s a wild ride from start to finish." The play may be a masterpiece of poetic dramatic structure and one of the greatest love stories ever told, but it’s also more than five pages long, and who has that kind of time?

So it’s for this reason and this reason alone that I decided to condense the whole haunting tale of love and loss into a bunch of texts. (And don’t you dare suggest it was because I was bored on a Saturday night. That doesn’t sound like me at all.)
