Romeo and Juliet with a twist.
Update May 17: Soaps.com has performance details for the play, “Composure,” written by “General Hospital” script writer Scott Sickles and directed by Fritz Brekeller.

Not to mention, Fletcher wasn’t prepared to confront Tommy, his high school best friend who left him with a broken heart.
