“Shakespeare Apocalypse” (Working Title) follows Peter, a grad student, whose rant against Shakespeare and the classics goes viral causing a worldwide retaliation against the Bard. Classes are cancelled, performances boycotted, and plays are burned.

Little does anyone know that this exact occurrence was foretold to be the start of the apocalypse. Enter a newly revived and angry Shakespeare, who along with his henchmen Ernest Hemingway and Jane Austen, are set on destroying the world for ignoring their art.

It’s up to Peter and his friends to stop them.
