This thirty-minute Macbeth includes seven key scenes from a play so powerful that actors choose to refer to it only as "The Scottish Play." We open with the Weird Sisters predicting Macbeth's fate, followed by Macbeth and his wife plotting and then carrying out the murder of King Duncan.
This abridgement also features the appearance of Banquo's ghost at the banquet, the Witches' unforgettable "double double toil and trouble" scene, and Lady Macbeth's riveting "out, damned spot" sleepwalk.
This endlessly entertaining edition ends with the entire cast reciting Macbeth's poignant "tomorrow, tomorrow, and tomorrow" speech in unison.
This edition includes a preface by Nick Newlin, containing helpful advice on how to put on a Shakespeare performance in a high school class with novice actors, as well as an appendix with suggestions for the specific play and recommendations for further resources.
