Peckham to get the Shakespeare treatment

A new short film set on an estate in Peckham aims to explore the insecurities faced by many young people. 

But in an extra twist it's made up entirely of dialogue from Shakespeare's plays.

It's called The Works and is being made by actor and writer Elliot Barnes-Worrell.

He's launched a crowdfunding campaign to finance The Works and plans to provide opportunities on set to young people hoping to get into the film industry.
