Synopsis

Sixty-Minute Shakespeare is an ideal alternative for those who lack the time or means to tackle the unabridged versions of the world's most widely read playwright. Cass Foster has judiciously condensed (without modernizing) the Bard's richly poetic language. He has skillfully retained the integrity of the text, allowing students to experience the thrill of the stories as well as the captivating imagery in the prose and verse. In addition, Foster has provided helpful footnotes on nearly every page explaining the more arcane words and phrases to help the reader better understand and appreciate each play. Practical suggestions are clearly laid out for staging, pacing and thematic exploration. Scenes flow smoothly from one to the next, maintaining a continuity difficult to find in other condensed versions of the Bard's works. Each script is approximately 70 pages. Join those in the United States, Canada and 45 other countries who are using these wonderful texts for classroom use and performance.
