penfairy oh! I have to tell you guys a great story one of my professors told me So he has a friend who is involved in these Shakespeare outreach programs where they try to bring Shakespeare and live theatre to poor and underprivileged groups and teach them about English literature and performing arts and such On one of their tours they stopped at a young offenders institute for women and they put on a performance of Romeo and Juliet for a group of 16-17 year old girls It was all going really well and the girls were enjoying and laughing through the first half- because really the first half is pretty much a comedy-but as the play went on things started to get quiet Real quiet Then it got up to the suicide scene and mutterings broke out and all the girls were nudging each other and looking distressed and as this teacher observed them he realised-they didn't know how the play ended These girls had never been exposed to the story of Romeo and Juliet before something which he thought was impossible given how ubiquitous it is in our culture I mean the prologue even gives the ending away but of course it doesn't specify exactly how the whole take their life thing goes down so these poor girls had no idea what to expect and were sitting there clinging to hope that Romeo would maybe sit down for a damn minute instead of murdering Paris and chugging poison but BAM he died and they all cried out and then Juliet WOKE UP and they SCREAMED and by the end of the play they were so upset that a brawl nearly broke out and that's the story of how Shakespeare nearly started a riot at a juvenile detention centre dukeofbookingham Apparently something similar happened during a production of Much Ado at Rikers Island because a bunch of inmates wanted to beat the shit out of Claudio which is more than fair tbh maha-pambata-is-my-patronus honestly Shakespeare would be so pleased to know his plays were nearly starting brawls centuries into the future jabberwockypie Beating the shit out of Claudio is definitely a fair and reasonable response honestly Source penfairy Shakespeare Meme
