Publisher's Summary

Power struggles. Bitter rivalries. Jealousy. Betrayals. Star-crossed lovers. When you consider all these plot points, it’s pretty surprising William Shakespeare didn’t write Mean Girls. But now fans can treat themselves to the epic drama - and heroic hilarity - of the classic teen comedy rendered with the wit, flair, and iambic pentameter of the Bard. 

Our heroine, Cady, disguises herself to infiltrate the conniving Plastics, falls for off-limits Aaron, struggles with her allegiance to newfound friends Damian and Janis, and stirs up age-old vendettas among the factions of her high school. Best-selling author Ian Doescher brings his signature Shakespearean wordsmithing to this cult classic beloved by generations of teen girls and other fans. Now, on the 15th anniversary of its release, Mean Girls is a recognized cultural phenomenon, and it’s more than ready for an Elizabethan makeover.

Fabulous!

The whole thing is brilliant and fun for mean girl fans and Shakespeare fans alike. The only minor complaint is the shift in volume between some of the narrations.

Hope Ian is able to do more of these.

Another great effort from him, despite the cast being people I've not heard of. Only seen clips of Mean Girls, but, it's hilarious, as is this take.

So much fun

I may not be a huge fan of Shakespeare, but I am a huge fan of the movie. I adored this because it was very funny. It was a great adaptation of the movie.

The Taming of the Plastics

Hearing Jingle Bell Rock in Shakespeare verse was a highlight. Otherwise an underwhelming piece at times, with some humourous moments throughout
