The two lovers meet early on and fall in love at first sight. Only Juliet is another guy.
They come from warring families. Only the Capulet’s are Palestinians and Montague’s are Israelis.
They meet in a nether zone where identities are often obscured. Only instead of a masked ball it’s a gay bar.
The plot gets thick when Juliet’s brother gets killed. Only the dead man is Juliet’s spiritual brother, killed by Juliet’s blood brother, who is also Mercutio, and also a terrorist.
The Duke knows all yet does nothing.
Friar Tuck is a mafia kingpin. But he does right by our entangled lovers. Who meet forever in the afterlife, which is the City of Light, if you are a romantic; or a prison if you are not.
I won’t say because the end is too perfect to spoil. Just watch Out in the Dark. It’s fine Shakespeare.
