Fifteen-Minute Shakespeare

Three of Shakespeare's tragedies, Antony and Cleopatra, Macbeth and Romeo and Juliet are here presented in abridged form for lively classroom performance and are suitable for both drama and English classes. It is not intended that a reading or performance of Fifteen-Minute Shakespeare should be a substitute for a study of the complete plays.

The aim of these plays is to present Shakespeare's texts in a fast-paced, hilarious style for junior students who know the stories but have not studied the text, or for senior students who wish to have some light-hearted fun after studying the full text. Shakespeare's own language has been preserved intact, but heavily edited, to provide these comic versions which bring out Shakespeare's essential earthiness, as well as his comic genius, evident even in his tragedies.
