I spotted the “Kill Shakespeare” project a little while ago when they started following me on Twitter. Fair enough, I thought – some more Shakespeare in the Manga style. We’ve had that before.
Apparently they’ve got something else in mind altogether! This might be a little over the top for some of the readers, but I think it could be great fun. What do you think of a giant Shakespearean crossover where the “heroes” – Hamlet, Juliet, Falstaff – do epic battle against the villains – Iago, Richard III, Lady M?
As a purist I think the whole thing would self destruct – I think Hamlet wouldn’t be able to stand Falstaff and neither of them would give Juliet a second glance. And I suspect that Iago and Richard would probably kill each other.
But we’ll just have to see how it plays out!
Update : Hamlet couldn’t stand Falstaff, that is. :)
