Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Planning a school or amateur Shakespeare production? The best way to experience the plays is to perform them, but getting started can be a challenge: The complete plays are too long and complex, while scene selections or simplified language are too limited.

"The 30-Minute Shakespeare" is a new series of abridgements that tell the “story” of each play from start to finish while keeping the beauty of Shakespeares language intact. Specific stage directions and character suggestions give even inexperienced actors the tools to perform Shakespeare with confidence, understanding, and fun!

This cutting of ROMEO AND JULIET is edited to four key scenes, starting with the lyrical prologue and the foreboding opening brawl, which is played out in slow motion to music. Also included are the timeless balcony scene; the harsh scolding of Juliet by her father; and the final moments at the tomb.

The edition also includes an essay by editor Nick Newlin on how to produce a Shakespeare play with novice actors, and notes about the original production of this abridgement at the Folger Shakespeare Library's annual Student Shakespeare Festival.

Synopsis:

"Nick Newlin is a master at engaging students in the process of understanding, rehearsing, staging, performing, and enjoying a Shakespeare scene."-- Janet Field-Pickering, head of education, Folger Shakespeare Library

Synopsis:

In this edition, Romeo and Juliet is edited to five key scenes, starting with the lyrical prologue and the foreboding opening brawl, which is played out in slow motion to music as we are introduced to Romeo's romantic and volatile nature.

This cutting includes the timeless balcony scene; the harsh scolding of Juliet by her father, Lord Capulet; and the final moments at the tomb, where our tale of woe reaches its fateful conclusion. Throughout the play, specific stage directions and character suggestions give young actors the tools and confidence to tell Shakespeare's most famous love story.

The edition includes a preface by Nick Newlin, containing helpful advice on how to put on a Shakespeare performance in a high school class with novice actors, as well as an appendix with suggestions for the specific play and recommendations for further resources.
