Much like Broadway, London theatre’s remain dark as audiences socially distance through the coronavirus pandemix. But that didn’t stop the Young Vic from remaining creative: noting that Shakespeare wrote King Lear and Macbeth while in quarantine, the theatre company wondered what might the reuslts be if the Bard wrote his classic texts today.

See which texts were updated below and submit your own reinvention on Twitter with #SociallyDistancedShakespeare.

The Young Vic Theatre’s production of Hamlet is set to begin performances in London July 4 and run through August 22. Directed Greg Hersov, the Shakespearean tale of betrayal and revenge will star The Good Wife’s Cush Jumbo.
