The Most Excellent and Lamentable Tragedy [of Romeo & Juliet]

The game is a play and the play is a game. Four days to play without rules or limits. Four strangers, each with a chance to sacrifice themselves in the name of an Elizabethan tragedy. Love, art, poetry, politics... what would you die for? Is this "the greatest love story ever told", or "the child of an idle brain, begot of nothing but fantasy"? The play will be performed sometimes as tragedy, sometimes as comedy, but not necessarily in the usual order and not necessarily with the usual outcome.
