Everyone and their mother has been attempting to re-imagine Shakespeare for, y'know, kids: MTV 'Romeo and Juliet', shrews being tamed in American high schools ('10 Things I Hate About You'). But this version of Shakey's romantic fantasy gets that bit closer to the kids by filling its cast of princes, queens and fairies with, yep, kids. Ordinary kids from ordinary schools taking a shot at Shakespeare. Full marks.
