Juliet has had it! She hates dying every night, is annoyed by the lame-o plot, is appalled that there are hardly any parts for women, and believes, of course, everyone should be living happily ever after. So as any strong-willed woman would, she sets out to change Shakespeare’s masterpiece, much to the chagrin of Shakespeare himself.
