Detailed Description

**Note: Please order this book from our new website**


Now anyone, regardless of their experience level, can put on a Shakespeare play that keeps the beauty of the language intact, but makes it easy to perform and easily understandable. The 30-Minute Shakespeare series is a must have for teachers, youth leaders, and adults performing Shakespeare.

Through his thirteen years of working as a director-in-residence in DC public high schools under the auspices of the Folger Shakespeare Library, Nick Newlin has created thirty-minute edits of Shakespeare's plays, complete with stage directions and character suggestions that can be performed by groups of fifteen to thirty young people. Mr. Newlin approaches his texts with the mind of a scholar, the eye of a performer, and the sensibility of a director.

The 30-Minute Shakespeare series includes:
