Meet the Author

Brendan P. Kelso, known to the kids as Professor Peculiar because of his unique and humorous personality, came to writing modified Shakespeare scripts when he was taking time off from work to be at home with his son. "It just grew from there" Within months, he was being asked to offer classes in various locations and acting organizations along the coast of California. Employed as an engineer, Brendan never thought about writing. But he has always stated, "There is no better way to learn than to have fun!" Brendan makes his home on the central coast of California and loves to spend time with his wife and son.

    Oversimplified and dumbed-down

    Even though the sequence of events to a very complex play was done well, the characters were oversimplified and dumbed-down. I needed the script for my Jr. High students and felt that I needed to give them credit for having more insight and taste for comedy than this adaptation provided. The one positive thing that came of buying this script is that it prompted me to write my very own adaptation of which I am very proud to share with my students and our audience.
