Kill Shakespeare #8 (of 12)
Conor McCreery, Anthony Del Col (w) • Andy Belanger (a) • Kagan McLeod (c)
As word of the Prodigals' victory spreads a rebel army masses in Shrewsbury. Against this backdrop, Othello and Iago cross swords, Richard and Lady Macbeth lock horns and Hamlet and Juliet's love blossoms. But will the Dane live long enough to enjoy Cupid's fruit? Not if a ghost from Juliet's past has anything to say about it.
