We’d love your feedback! Editing the screenplay down to a filmable length was an incredibly tricky process. Uncut, the play runs around two and half hours, so the primary aim was to get it down to under two hours and still keep the story intact.
Despite the apparent verbosity of some of the characters, particularly the Duke and Lucio, much of the dialogue has a very natural and easy flow, and keeps the story moving along at quite a pace, which just goes to show the pure genius of Shakespeare.
Let us know what you think – have we cut out too much or too little? Are all the important bits there? Does shifting it to its new setting work for you?
