This 26 page script is the fourth in a series, and it also retains much of Shakespeare's language, including such timeless quotes as, "Yet I do fear thy nature; it is too full of the milk of human kindness," and "Out, damned spot!" It is shortened and simplified for use by 6th through 10th grade and RSP English classes.
Students are quickly engaged by this tale of witches, magic, murder, revenge, betrayal, and the ultimate triumph of the rightful king. Classes have used this script for puppet shows, Readers' Theater, improvisational sets, selected scenes, and full productions.
A complete set of activities is also available to enhance the study of plot, character theme, setting, and figurative language.
