This script contains 14 scenes that are each 1-2 pages of dialogue. Strung together, these scenes create an entire 30-minute performance. Or, since each scene stands on its own, they are also perfect for classroom scene work. Also, since the original play is compressed here, some ancillary characters have been omitted and lines reassigned in some scenes.
Flexible casting for 11+. If you have a small group, this script can be used with a single person playing each role. If you have a larger group then each character can be played by several different students. A list of which characters appear in what scenes is included plus a list of how many scenes each characters has to help with casting parts.
This script is in verse. However, since the original lines are cut down for time and younger readers, the iambic pentameter is altered. Verse is still easier for students to read and to memorize, so the verse formatting has been maintained in this version.
--You may print this for yourself and your classroom as many times as needed.
