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.
