Once upon a time you stood on soft soil in a perilous pit with anxious anticipation. You had a tomato in your pocket, and seedy eccentrics by your side. You yelled at all the naughty bits and misbehaved entirely. It was debauchery. It was dangerous. It was BAD. (It was badass).

Now it is deadly. We sit in the dark and nod and yawn and pretend we know what the old fella was on about. Years and years of screens have rendered us unable to listen properly and the headphones wrecked our poor ears anyway. We smile politely afterwards and don’t mention how he made us feel a bit stupid.

Victoria University's THEA302 & THEA308 have decided to hit Shakespeare where it hurts.
Is he past it for the millennial generation? Can we turn "Much Ado About Nothing" into something? Something for people conditioned to Snapchat, Vines, and 140 characters?
He was cool once: Can We Make Shakespeare Bad Again?

Badass Shakespeare. You want it. We got it. Let’s talk.
