The script is set 50 years in the future when a body is found and Montresor is on trial for murder of Fortunato. Witnesses are called and parts of the story are reenacted. It is up to those watching AND reading to serve as jurors to decide if a crime has been committed. Students then read the story to see if the verdict they chose was valid.
Makes an excellent pre-reading activity not only to provide a reason to read Poe's version but also to introduce vocabulary from Poe’s time period.
