Audio, Romeo and Juliet

Why do Romeo and Juliet fall in love?


Here are Richard’s thoughts. I’m with him. We need reasons. In Shakespeare it happens in nineteen lines or so. In an eleven-hour audio drama we have to know more. Connection, detachment from the adult world, need, above all a recognition of something shared…

I love his goths and emo comparison too. It hadn’t occurred to me as I was writing but it’s spot on. This is where scriptwriting beats straight fiction into the dust. You’re not a lone warrior any more. You’re collaborating. With luck you produce something that a great performer can take, run with and make bigger and better.
