A clever adaption of Edgar Allan Poe's Gothic masterpiece in a modern setting. Uniquely suitable for a wide-range of readers. Because the "beating heart" is an annoying cell phone, all your third through eighth graders will readily relate to the story. Whether reader's theater or stage production, this fifteen-minute play includes parts for up to nine students. Original purchaser is licensed to reproduce a full class set every year! Looking for a traditional re-telling? Take a look at my Tell-Tale Heart script, which comes with the original text and a mock trial comprehension activity, making for an excellent compare and contrast. Thanks!
