After reading King Lear, I typically show "King of Texas" which is a western adaptation of the play. Afterwards, I hand out this assignment which is not only a good review activity before the test, but this assignment has proven to be a lot of fun over the past few years. Students are asked to basically recreate the story following the same plot but adding their own twists. I also make students present these to the rest of the class. This can be an individual assignment, but I let groups of 2-3 students work together.
