Shreds and Patches is an imagining of Shakespeare's Hamlet like no other! An excellent easy-to-stage competition piece that fuses Shakespearean speech with modern dialogue - a super fun way to bring Shakespeare into the classroom!

Letters

Letters

by Mrs. Evelyn Merritt

For many wars, letters home were the only form of communication between soldiers and their loved ones.

Letters is thought-provoking and character-driven. It's not hard to see Marie, Jim, Caleb, Sarah, Harriet and Robert reaching out with pen and paper.

An excellent and challenging Reader's Theatre script.
