The greatest love story of ever told ruined by a couple of jerks.

Advance Praise for Two Girls One Bard:

“A show for Shakespeare lovers and Shakespeare haters alike! The Shakespeare ambivalent will find it ‘alright’.”
-Ray Theynu, Historic-Filipino-Town Press

“An irreverent re-imagining of William Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet, performed by a cast of two women. Shakespeare meets sketch comedy. Set to the music of Prince.”
-Serena Dominic, LA-Four-Times-A-Monthly

“Who can complain about watchin chicks do theatre?! My favorite part was when they made out.”
-Larry Anonymous, Huffington Post

“I thought you girls did a very good skit but I would have enjoyed it more if there had been less swearing.”
-Alison’s Grandmother
