    Abstract:
    Moon-Crossed reimagines the central plot of Shakespeare's All's Well That Ends Well as a means to examining the female monstrous in early modern drama, literature, and though. Why doesn't Bertram like Helena? Because she's a werewolf. But as he learns, she's of a very noble line of werewolves. She saves the King of France, he learns a bit more about werewolves, and they both come to a new understanding of each other.
    Notes:
    Moon-Crossed was originally written as an entry for the American Shakespeare Center’s “Shakespeare’s New Contemporaries” competition. Each year, the ASC selects five of Shakespeare’s plays; playwrights then choose one to use as an inspiration or basis for their new work, responding to, parodying, or otherwise engaging with the work. In keeping with the ASC’s practices of universal lighting and minimal staging, Moon-Crossed needs no costumes or lighting equipment and only a few props.
