Product Description

This bundle includes scripted versions of the famous Edgar Allan Poe short story "The Tell Tale Heart."

Rather than just reading as a monologue from one point of view, students can become the characters as they read or perform it in class! The script is in updated language and includes 2 characters, the first is a police interrogator who is interviewing the murder suspect, the other is the suspect who murdered the old man and is telling his story. This is a great way to engage students with this story.

There are also several monologue versions of the short story in different lengths with both the original and updated language. Students can choose different lengths to memorize and perform for the class!

The bundle includes 4 versions so you can decide what works best for your classroom.

1. 10-15 min. script that uses script that adapts the short story into a police

2. 3-4 min. monologue that updates the language

3. 5-7 min. monologue that uses the original Poe language

4. 7-10 min. monologue that uses the original Poe language

This also works great as a compare and contrast assignment between Poe's original work and updated language versions. Students can decide which they like better!

**If you plan to use these scripts in a performance that has tickets being sold, please contact me for performance rights information. You are welcome to perform this for anything where tickets are not being sold.
