We had a wonderful time working on this play. The adaptation was very accessible for my students.
Joanna Edie
The Langley School
Excellent for middle school or students who aren't familiar with Shakespeare. The sidebar of notes and questions are a great jumping off point for exploring the text and leave room for interpretation.
Todd Schaefer
Webster Groves High School
We had such a great time with the play! The students loved the cutting and the audiences did as well.
