Two one act plays in which famous speeches and scenes from Shakespeare are acted out as part of a comic story about a bored king and his troupe of players.
These versatile plays by Paul Nimmo are suitable for the 11-18 year age range and have been produced with varying ages within the same cast and also performed by adults to a young audience.
The plays can be produced as a double bill or each will stand on its own. Either play can be performed by a small cast without a set, few props and modern dress; or large cast, traditional set and costumes. The scripts are also ideal for reading aloud by classes or groups and provide an excellent introduction to the works of Shakespeare.
The plays were successfully performed on tour and at the Shakespeare's Globe in London and both plays?have proved to be immensly popular with schools and drama groups everywhere.
Cast requirements: minimum cast of 10 (3 principals) or a large cast of any size
