Romeo, You Idiot

We don’t often think of it, but students must be bored with always presenting the same types of plays.

As ISHCMC knows all about ‘young people these days’, they’re giving their secondary students the opportunity to bite into something that appeals more to their rascally little hearts — the Tim Kochenderfer adaptation of the Shakespeare classic. Set in Verona, Romeo meets Juliet and faces down obstacles both familiar — warring families and star-crossed fates — and funky, like vampires and cacti.


Romeo, You Idiot will run from Nov. 24 to Nov. 26, 7pm to 9pm, at ISHCMC, 28 Vo Truong Toan, Q2, HCMC. Tickets are currently available at VND50,000 a pop — contact drama teacher Amy Penn at
