Open the door to Shakespearean performance with these special adaptations. Each page has a sidebar with word translations, acting tips, and character suggestions.

These scripts have also found success in English classes.

Two sets of twins, separated at birth, end up in the same town. A comedy of errors and mistaken identity ensues.

"I gave you the money! You promised me a chain. Why did you lock me out? You ate dinner at home. Where’s my money? Where’s my chain? Demons and ghosts surround us!"

A great combination of Shakespeare, physical action, and slapstick humour.
