Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

King Lear: The 30-Minute Shakespeare renders six powerful scenes from this enduring tragedy. Starting with Lears banishment of Cordelia, the plot advances irresistibly, featuring scenes of brother Edmunds villainous plotting and the Fools witty, weighty wordplay.

The action climaxes with the storm on the heath, where Lear and Poor Tom rail in exquisite madness. The abridgement concludes with moving scenes of Cordelias tender reconciliation with King Lear and their heart-rending demise.

The edition includes helpful advice by Nick Newlin on how to put on a Shakespeare production in a high school class with novice actors, as well as tips for performing the specific play and recommendations for further resources.

Synopsis:

An abridgement for performance by young people and amateur adults, “road tested” at the Folger Shakespeare Librarys Student Shakespeare Festival.
