Product Description
This 'modern, child-friendly' version of A Midsummer Night's Dream is the latest in a set of alternative Shakespeare scripts, written by playwright Sue Russell, in her usual irreverent style. Whilst the plot stays faithful to the original by Shakespeare, and there are numerous 'direct quotes' from the bard's script, the characters undergo some interesting changes - Hermia and Lysander hardly the most loving couple, Helena anything but the loyal best friend, and as for 'big butt Bottom', 'bushy bearded heroine Thisby', Snug the asthmatic lion .... there are endless opportunities here to poke fun at the players! Written for a cast of 16 plus, and with an approximate running time of 40 minutes, this script is guaranteed to entertain audiences - dukes, duchesses, mortals and fairies alike!Also available: Midsummer Nightmare - helped along by Michael Jackson's Thriller; and another alternative Romeo & Juliet script - with some truly bizarre twists! These are all part of a set of plays written by teacher/playwright Sue Russell. All Sue's plays may be viewed on her website www.plays-r-ussell.com Sue also offers a 'write on demand' service - contact her on sue@plays-r-ussell.com with any requests.
